Alectra Utilities application to raise its electricity distribution rates effective January 1, 2020

Alectra Utilities Corporation
EB-2019-0018

Alectra Utilities Corporation applied to the Ontario Energy Board to raise the electricity distribution rates it charges in its five rate zones effective January 1, 2020:

  • Horizon Rate Zone: An increase of approximately $0.56 each month for a typical residential customer
  • Brampton Rate Zone: An increase of approximately $0.91 each month for a typical residential customer
  • PowerStream Rate Zone: An increase of approximately $0.81 each month for a typical residential customer
  • Enersource Rate Zone: An increase of approximately $0.58 each month for a typical residential customer
  • Guelph Rate Zone: An increase of approximately $0.11 each month for a typical residential customer

Other customers including businesses may also be affected. The requested rate increase is set using an Ontario Energy Board-approved formula which is tied to inflation and other factors intended to promote efficiency.

In addition, Alectra Utilities Corporation has applied for approval of a rate-adjustment mechanism (M- Factor) to fund capital investments that it says it is unable fund through current rates. The above-noted bill impacts include the impact of this request.

Alectra Utilities Corporation has also requested that the Ontario Energy Board reverse its previous decision to establish capitalization deferral accounts for each of the Brampton, Enersource and Horizon rate zones.

Review the application carefully for a full list of approvals requested.
