Amendment to Regulation under Ontario Clean Energy Benefit Act

On June 29, 2012, the Government issued Ontario Regulation 197/12 amending the O. Regulation 495/10 under the Ontario Clean Energy Benefit (OCEB) Act. The main objective of the amendments is to limit financial benefit for eligible customers to the first 3,000 kWh/month of consumption. The regulation is effective from September 1, 2012, consistent with the date announced in the 2012 Ontario Budget.

The eligibility for the program has not changed and all residential customers, farms, and small businesses will continue to qualify for the OCEB.

The amending regulation contains a provision to exempt residential consumers requiring the use of medical equipment operating on electricity, from the 3000 kWh/month cap. Consumers that wish to use this provision will be required to submit a form made available by LDCs that includes information and statements reflected in the amended regulation.

The regulation also states that the wording which currently appear on the invoice, namely “Ontario Clean Energy Benefit (-10%)” is to be struck out and is to be labeled as specified by the Minister. The Ministry will be contacting distributors shortly with revised wording.

Specifically, the amendments include:

Definition for “multi-unit complex”

Rules to calculate the maximum allowable financial benefit

Rules for prorating the benefit amount if the effective date (September 1, 2012) for implementation of OCEB cap and also the end date (i.e., January 1, 2016) fall within the utility’s billing period.

Meaning of a “month”

The cutoff date for multi-unit complexes to provide self declaration for the purpose of availing OCEB – July 1, 2016

Exemption of the OCEB cap for customers requiring medical equipment that runs on electricity

The information to be provided by customers applying for the exemption of OCEB cap - the cutoff date for customers to provide notice is July 1, 2016

For additional information, contact the Ministry of Energy at 1-888-668-4636.
