The Ontario Energy Board sets the commodity rates for the Regulated Price Plan (RPP). The OEB adjusts the Regulated Price Plan (RPP) twice per year; May 1st and November 1st based on an updated forecast and any difference between the amount consumers paid for electricity and the amount paid to generators.
RPP pricing is based on a two-tier structure for residential, small commercial and certain designated consumers. During the winter months (November 1 - April 30) the first 1,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) are priced at the lower tier and any consumption above this threshold is at the higher tier for residential consumers. In the summer months (May 1 – October 31) the threshold for the lower tier is reduced to the first 600 kilowatt hours used for residential consumers.
The threshold for non-residential RPP consumers is 750 kilowatt hours (kWh) which are priced at the lower tier and any consumption above this threshold is at the higher tier year-round.
Pursuant to the Regulation filed under s. 79.4 (1) (a) of the Ontario Energy Board Act, 1998, where the account of a low-volume or a designated consumer relates to:
The conservation threshold for that consumer is determined based on the number of units within the property or complex. In order to determine the appropriate conservation threshold, consumers must sign a declaration attesting to the number of units to which an account relates.
If you qualify for a conservation threshold which is more than 600/1000 per month (eg. there is more than one unit associated with your account), you must complete and sign this form and send it to our office by fax or mail immediately. Once Grimsby Power Incorporated has received and processed this Declaration Form, your account will be adjusted. Any delay in processing due to inaccurate or missing information provided on the form will not result in adjustments to previous billings.
If you have multiple accounts eligible for a higher conservation threshold because there is more than one unit associated with your account, list each account separately. Do not include units which are metered/billed separately.
You must advise us in writing if your account ceases to qualify for a higher conservation threshold or if there is a change in the number of units within the property or complex.
