Smart Metering Charge 2018-2022

EB-2017-0290

The Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), in its capacity as the Smart Metering Entity, has applied to the Ontario Energy Board to reduce the Smart Metering Charge by 25%, from the current $0.79 per meter per month to $0.59 per meter per month, effective January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2022. If the application is approved a typical residential customer in Ontario will see a decrease of $0.20 per month in the Smart Metering Charge, which is included in the Regulatory Charges line of your electricity bill.

The Smart Metering Charge covers the costs of developing and operating the Meter Data Management/Repository, which is used to collect, manage, store and retrieve smart metering data.
