Homeowners and certain designated consumers are part of the regulated price plan (RPP) set by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB). The threshold under the RPP varies by season to reflect changing consumption patterns.
The OEB is responsible for regulating electricity prices for low-volume consumers – those who use fewer than 250,000 kWh a year. The OEB adjusts these rates twice a year, to better reflect the true cost of electricity.
General Service Bulk Metered Multi-unit residential buildings may be eligible for the regulated price plan structure, and Debt Retirement Charge exemption. The Ontario Government has indicated that it is up to the consumers to identify themselves.
