OEB denies stay of Green Energy Act assessments

July 28, 2010
On July 26 the OEB denied a request to stay the Green Energy Act assessments issued under Regulation 66/10.  The request for a stay was made as part of a proceeding before the OEB to determine if the assessments are an unconstitutional indirect tax.  The assessments were the subject of considerable publicity last spring when the C.D. Howe Institute issued a study concluding that the assessments were unconstitutional.  The OEB stated that written reasons for the denial will follow.  A date has not yet been set for a hearing on the merits of the constitutional challenge.
