Media releases

The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) announced today new electricity prices for households and small businesses, effective November 1, under the Regulated Price Plan (RPP). The winter time-of-use (TOU) hours will also take effect November 1.

Consumers are reporting being contacted by scam artists pretending to be from their utility and threatening to disconnect electricity service if they don’t receive payment immediately.

The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) has accepted an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance (AVC) from Wyse Meter Solutions Inc. (Wyse), an OEB-licensed unit sub-meter provider, following an inspection by the OEB into the company’s information disclosure and billing practices. In the AVC, Wyse has assured the OEB that it has made or will make changes to those practices to ensure compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, and will pay an administrative penalty to the OEB of $65,000.

The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) today announced there will be little change to electricity prices on May 1, and that summer time-of-use (TOU) hours come into effect.
