2023-2027 Joint Distribution and Transmission Rates Application

Hydro One Networks Inc.
EB-2021-0110

Hydro One Networks Inc. has applied to the Ontario Energy Board for approval of a plan to set the amount it charges for using its transmission system and the amount it charges for electricity distribution in each of five years beginning on January 1, 2023 and ending on December 31, 2027.

Transmission Ratepayers

The Ontario Energy Board’s decision on the transmission portion of this application will have an effect on all electricity consumers in Ontario. The cost of transmission is reflected in the delivery charges included on customer bills.

If the transmission portion of the application is approved as filed, a typical residential customer and a typical general service customer of Hydro One Networks Inc. would see the following monthly changes:

  2023 2024 2025 2026 2027
R1 Residential
750 kWh
($0.43) $0.49 $0.61 $0.77 $0.52
General Service less than 50kW
(2,000 kWh)
($0.90) $1.03 $1.30 $1.62 $1.11


The changes for customers of other electricity distributors across the province may vary depending on the customer’s electricity usage and the electricity distributor that serves them.

Other customers, including businesses, may be affected as well.

Hydro One Distribution Customers

The Ontario Energy Board’s decision on the distribution portion of this application will only have an effect on distribution customers of Hydro One Networks Inc.

If the distribution portion of the application is approved as filed, a typical residential customer and a typical general service customer of Hydro One Networks Inc. would see the following monthly changes that are in addition to the transmission changes noted above:

  2023 2024 2025 2026 2027
R1 Residential
750 kWh (without Distribution Rate Protection)
($2.78) $1.40 $2.36 $3.18 $2.26
General Service less than 50kW
(2,000 kWh)
($8.32) $1.43 $6.12 $8.38 $6.99


Seasonal rates are being considered in a separate proceeding (EB-2020-0246), but are expected to be implemented in this proceeding.

Other customers, including businesses, may be affected as well.

Hydro One Acquired Distribution Customers

Hydro One Networks Inc. previously acquired the electricity distribution assets of Norfolk Power, Haldimand County Hydro and Woodstock Hydro. If the application is approved, a typical former residential customer of these three distributors, using 750 kWh per month, would see changes as set out in the table below that are in addition to the transmission changes noted above:
