Setting Rates
In the Province of Ontario, electricity rates are set by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB). These include the rates for the electricity commodity as generated, transmission through high voltage systems (e.g. Hydro One), and distribution through local systems (e.g. EnWin ). The OEB is responsible for ensuring that all rates are "justified and reasonable". Therefore, when EnWin seeks a rate increase, it must prove that the rates sought are "justified and reasonable". The case is presented to the OEB through an application. Below you will find the justified and reasonable rates current to the date indicated. More information on rates is available at the OEB website:

Total Loss Factor Adjustment

As electricity is delivered over a power line, a small amount of power is consumed or lost as heat. This is known as line loss. Line loss is caused by equipment such as wires and transformers, which consume power before it gets to your home or business. The loss factor adjustment accounts for these losses.
