The OEB has published the 2022 Scorecards of Electricity Distributors. The scorecard measures how well Ontario’s electricity distributors are performing each year.

The OEB has accepted an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance from Entegrus Powerlines Inc., an electricity distributor. The Assurance responds to non-compliance with its rate orders related to overcharging customers as a result of a billing system error.

The OEB has established a working group to assess opportunities for reducing regulatory burden associated with the filing and review process of major rate applications for very small electricity distributors (those with fewer than 5,000 customers).

The OEB has issued a letter summarizing recent guidance and resources to help electricity distributors in planning their systems for the efficient integration of electric vehicles (EVs). The letter also informs the sector of an expansion of scope to the Distributed Energy Resources Connections Review consultation to review matters relating to system readiness for EV charger connections.

The OEB has issued a Bulletin providing guidance to distributors regarding the basic connection for residential customers. The Bulletin also reminds distributors of their obligations under the Distribution System Code (DSC) in relation to residential subdivision connections and service upgrades.

The OEB has launched an enhanced interactive infographic that provides an at-a-glance overview of how OEB regulatory processes rely on parts of RRR from electricity distributors.

The OEB has accepted an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance from Champagne Centre Ltd. following an OEB inspection into the company’s activities related to unit sub-metering. The inspection found that Champagne Centre Ltd., by conducting unit sub-metering activities without a licence, was non-compliant with sections 57(a) and (c.1) of the Ontario Energy Board Act, 1998. This reflects the OEB’s commitment to protecting consumers.

The OEB has released an updated variance settlement factor that is to be used by electricity distributors to calculate a one-time credit or charge for consumers who choose to stop purchasing electricity through the Regulated Price Plan. This factor is called the "Final RPP Variance Settlement Factor" and is updated on the OEB website monthly.

The OEB has accepted an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance from GrandBridge Energy Inc., an electricity distributor. The Assurance responds to non-compliance with its rate orders related to overcharging customers as a result of a billing system error.

The OEB has issued a Notice of Amendments to the Transmission System Code (TSC) and the Distribution System Code (DSC) to ensure the most cost effective investments are made to replace major transmission voltage assets when they reach end-of-life (EOL) and need to be replaced, as part of the regional planning process.
