This report identifies opportunities to streamline the regulatory framework for electricity distribution, with key recommendations involving revision to:
- The Interim Rate Mechanism Application Process
- The Cost of Service Application Process
- The Intervenor Process
The EDA has called on decision-makers to adopt these recommendations in order to improve regulatory oversight, reduce regulatory costs and ultimately benefit customers. In his 2011 Annual Report, Ontario’s Auditor General highlighted the need for various regulatory changes in the electricity sector, which aligned closely with the recommendations in this EDA report.
