GRIMSBY POWER SUBMITS APPLICATION FOR 2015 RATES

Posted August 22nd, 2014

 

Each year, Grimsby Power is required under directives from the Ontario Energy Board ("OEB") to submit a proposal for new electricity rates for the upcoming calendar year.  The 2015 Rate Application was submitted to the OEB on August 13, 2014 and may be viewed on the Ontario Energy Board's website under Grimsby Power's filing number EB-2014-0076.  A link to the site has been created under the Regulatory section of this website.

The application is formulaic in nature and is tied to inflation, recovery of permissible costs and in accordance with forecast changes to transmission and other rates beyond the control of Grimsby Power.  The portion of costs over which Grimsby Power has control is proposed to increase by approximately 1.4% in 2015, in line with inflation.  The rates are subject to change, with a final decision from the OEB expected toward the end of 2014.

Total bill impacts for residential customers would show an increase in the range of between 2.5% and 3.9%.  A household with an average consumption of 800 kWh per month would potentially see an increase of $4.41, from $119.63 to $124.04 per month.

The bill impacts for business customers would be higher, in the range of between 6.7% to 9.6%.  A small business with an average consumption of 2,000 kWh per month would potentially see an increase of $18.96 (6.7%), from $284.16 to $303.12. 

For business customers whose electricity demand is greater than 50 kW, Grimsby Power has prepared a letter providing more detail, which may be viewed at the following link:  Letter to General Service 50 to 4,999 kW Customers.

Recent news

Starting January 1, 2021, a portion of renewable energy contract costs will be funded by the Ontario government instead of electricity customers. This will lower electricity bills for large and mid-sized commercial and industrial consumers who do not participate in the Regulated Price Plan (RPP) or receive the Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER) by reducing Global Adjustment (GA) costs. Class A consumers could see savings of about 15 per cent on their bills, while non-RPP Class B consumers could see savings of about 16 per cent on their bills*. Actual savings will vary depending on customers’ location and electricity consumption. RPP customers who receive the OER, such as residential, small business and farm consumers, will receive an adjusted rebate percentage starting January 1, 2021, to keep the average residential bill flat compared to November 2020. For a temporary period of 28 days starting January 1, 2021, all RPP customers, including those paying both time-of-use and tiered rates, will also benefit from being billed at the off-peak rate for 24 hours a day, seven days a week. *In 2021, Class A and Class B consumers could see savings of about 11% and 12%, respectively, due to the Global Adjustment (GA) deferral repayment in effect for 12 months starting January 2021.
