The Province’s 2017 Long-Term Energy Plan included a directive to the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) to expand oversight of Ontario’s sub-metering industry (USMPs). On December 6, 2018, the Ontario Government introduced Bill 66, Restoring Ontario’s Competitiveness Act, 2019. The
effect of this legislation, if passed, would be to repeal the OEB’s authority to govern fees charged by USMPs for sub-metered units in multi-residential buildings.
The Sub-metering Council of Ontario (SCO) engaged Power Advisory to prepare a report comparing the cost of electricity to the SCO members’ residential customers with what they would be paying if they were individually metered by their Local Distribution Company (LDC).
