Sioux Lookout Hydro Inc.

Sioux Lookout Hydro has applied to the Ontario Energy Board to increase typical residential electricity distribution rates by $6.77 per month. Other customers will also be affected. The distribution rate increase of $5.76 per month as provided by Sioux Lookout Hydro in its original application was revised to $6.77 due to the correction of certain technical errors and the use of the most up-to-date information.
