Westario Power Inc. filed an application on November 22, 2017 seeking approval for changes to the rates that WPI charges for electricity distribution for 2018. The ensuing process resulted in a Decision and Rate Order being issued by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) on May 17, 2018. The order deemed that new rates would be effective June 1, 2018 and will apply to electricity consumed, or estimated to have been consumed, on and after June 1, 2018 and therefore will be reflected in July’s bills.
For a typical residential customer with monthly consumption of 750 kWh, the total bill will increase by about $3.87 per month, an increase of about 3.6%.
