2018 Distribution Rate Application

Alectra Utilities Corporation
EB-2017-0024

Alectra Utilities Corporation has applied to the Ontario Energy Board to change the electricity distribution rates it charges in its four rate zones:

  • Horizon Rate Zone: A decrease of approximately $1.68 each month for a typical residential customer beginning on January 1, 2018.
  • Brampton Rate Zone: An increase of approximately $0.23 each month for a typical residential customer beginning on January 1, 2018.
  • PowerStream Rate Zone: An increase of approximately $0.54 each month for a typical residential customer beginning on January 1, 2018.
  • Enersource Rate Zone: An increase of approximately $0.41 each month for the typical residential customer beginning on January 1, 2018.

In addition to residential customers, other customers including businesses may also be affected.

The requested rate decrease in the Horizon Rate Zone is based on a framework approved by the Ontario Energy Board for the period 2015 to 2019 and is tied to costs for 2018 and measures to promote efficiency.

Alectra Utilities Corporation has also asked the Ontario Energy Board to approve new funding (incremental capital modules) for the construction of system assets in each of the Brampton, Enersource and PowerStream rate zones. The requested rate increases listed above for each of these three rate zones include both this new funding request as well as increases determined by formulas specific to each rate zone that were previously approved by the Ontario Energy Board and are tied to inflation and other factors that promote efficiency.

Alectra Utilities Corporation has also filed a distribution system plan for the Enersource Rate Zone.
