IESO and OEB are joining forces to support innovative projects to help meet province’s growing energy needs.

The OEB has issued the Report of the Ontario Energy Board: Regulatory Treatment of Impacts Arising from the COVID-19 Emergency which establishes guidelines for the COVID-19 deferral account.

The OEB has released an updated variance settlement factor that is to be used by electricity distributors to calculate a one-time credit or charge for consumers who choose to stop purchasing electricity through the Regulated Price Plan. This factor is called the "Final RPP Variance Settlement Factor" and is updated on the OEB website monthly.

The OEB has published the 2021 Quarter 3 prescribed accounting interest rates applicable to the carrying charges of deferral, variance and construction work in progress (CWIP) accounts of natural gas utilities, electricity distributors and other rate-regulated entities. There is no change to the prescribed rates for 2021 Quarter 3.

The OEB has accepted an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance from Eacom Timber Corporation. The Assurance responds to non-compliance related to operation in the wholesale market without a licence.

The OEB’s path to modernization includes developing a new and purposeful approach to stakeholder engagement. In renewing and expanding upon our commitment to enhanced engagement, we are establishing a new stakeholder advisory committee, the OEB Energy [X] Change. We are inviting nominations from the sector as we establish this committee. Members will serve as key contributors to our future planning discussions and prioritization processes.
