The OEB has developed a five-point plan to redesign the RPP to respond to policy objectives, improve system efficiency, and give consumers greater control. As part of this plan, the OEB will undertake a comprehensive revamping of the RPP that will make incremental changes over the course of the plan. This staged approach will provide consumers with an adequate amount of time to understand and adapt to any changes in the TOU pricing structure.
One of the major elements of the Roadmap is implementation of pilots for new pricing mechanics and non-price mechanisms. The pilots will provide the OEB with the information necessary to design new tools for customers to manage their electricity usage and provide for increased system efficiency.
