Essex Powerlines Corporation

Essex Powerlines Corporation (“EPLC”) has applied to the Ontario Energy Board for
approval to change its delivery charges beginning May 1, 2013. The application was
filed on October 12, 2012 under section 78 of the Ontario Energy Board Act, 1998, S.O.
1998, c.15 (Schedule B), under the Board’s guidelines for 3rd Generation Incentive
Regulation Mechanism which provides for a mechanistic and formulaic adjustment to
distribution rates between cost of service applications. EPLC’s application also includes
a request for revenue-to-cost ratio adjustments.

Delivery charges are one of four regular items on Residential and General Service
customers’ electricity bills and vary depending on the amount of electricity consumed. If
the application is approved as applied for, the monthly bill for a Residential
customer who consumes 800 kWh per month would decrease by about $0.16. The
monthly bill for a General Service customer consuming 2,000 kWh per month and
having a monthly demand of less than 50 kW would increase by about $0.61.  The
proposed changes to the Delivery charges are separate from other potential changes to
the electricity bills, which are not affected by this application.

For additional information on billing items visit the Consumer page of the Board’s
website at

Essex Powerlines Hurricane Sandy
Friday, 02 November 2012 13:04



(Oldcastle ON, Nov 2, 2012) A crew from Essex Powerlines left on November 1, 2012 to join in on the relief effort as a result of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in the North Eastern United States. After a call for assistance was issued, the crew consisting of Power Line Maintainers were destined for Morristown, New Jersey. The Essex Powerlines crew joined others from the local utilities once Entegrus (Chatham) organized the convoy and requested help from the surrounding utilities. Crews will be assisting First Energy Corp in their efforts to restore power to 1000s.

“We are pleased that we are able to do our part to help to this devastated area by sending a crew”, stated Mayor Wayne Hurst, Chair of the Essex Powerlines Board. “We wish all affected by this devastation well and to the crews a safe trip there and home.”

This is not the first time Essex Powerlines has answered a request for help as a result of a natural disaster. In 2005, Essex Powerlines crews travelled to Louisiana and Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. It is expected the crew will be gone for approximately 2 weeks.
