    North Bay Hydro’s Regulatory Scorecard

    The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) has developed a scorecard for all local distribution companies across the Province as a tool to allow customers to gain a better sense of how well their utility is performing over a 5 year period. Utility scorecards track and show comprehensive performance information for each electricity utility in Ontario, over a range of time and for a specific year.

CURRENT RATES AND SCHEDULE – EFFECTIVE November 1, 2022

The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) has announced summer Time-of-Use (TOU) hours, and the summer Tier threshold for residential customers to begin on November 1, 2022.

The TOU and Tiered prices set by the OEB under the Regulated Price Plan (RPP) are shown in the image below. The table also shows the hours to which those prices apply:

Also effective November 1, 2022, the Ontario government’s Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER) will be changed to 11.7%. The OER is a pre-tax credit that appears at the bottom of electricity bills. For a typical residential customer who uses 700 kWh of electricity per month, the OER would decrease bills by about $13.91 each month.
