OEB initiates consultation on implementing Energy Consumer Protection Act, 2010

5 août 2010

Ce billet est disponible en anglais seulement.

On August 4 the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) issued a letter to stakeholders that sets out an overview of the consultation process that the Board intends to follow to implement the consumer protection provisions of the Energy Consumer Protection Act, 2010 (the ECPA). The ECPA was passed by the provincial legislature in May, but has not yet been proclaimed into force. A draft regulation under the ECPA was released on July 2. The OEB expects that certain provisions of its regulatory instruments, including the Electricity Retailer Code of Conduct and Code of Conduct for Gas Marketers, will need to be amended to bring them into line with the ECPA and the draft regulation. The Board will hold a stakeholder meeting on August 20 and has asked any stakeholder that wishes to participate to register by August 13.
