Erie Thames Power Lines Corporation Application for 2018 Rates

Erie Thames Powerlines Corporation

Erie Thames Power Lines Corporation has applied to the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) to increase typical residential electricity distribution rates by $2.70 per month. Other customers may also be affected.
The OEB is hosting a community meeting in Ingersoll on December 12, 2017. The purpose of this meeting is to hear directly from Erie Thames Power Lines Corporation’s customers about the requests that it has made in its rate application and to tell customers about the OEB’s rate review process. OEB representatives will be at the meeting to explain who we are and what we do. Most importantly, we are there to hear your comments and to answer your questions. We have asked Erie Thames Power Lines Corporation to be at the meeting to give an overview of its rate application and to explain the reasons for its requests. You can find a link to Erie Thames Power Lines Corporation’s full rate application below. 
If you have questions or comments about Erie Thames Power Lines Corporation’s rate application or its performance, the OEB wants to know about it. Your participation and input are important aspects of the OEB’s review. For information about your utility’s performance in areas such as reliability, customer service and operational efficiency, visit its Performance Dashboard.

The OEB is not accepting requests for intervenor status at this time. The decision on whether to invite intervenor participation and to offer cost eligibility for any intervenor participation will be made later.
