OCC sends letter to the Ontario Energy Board

    OCC outlines why cap and trade related costs need to be a separate line item on utility bills

    On September 2, 2016, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) sent a letter to the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) regarding their decision to have cap and trade costs included in the delivery charge of utilities.

    The OCC has publicly indicated support for the Province’s efforts in dealing with climate change through the Climate Change Action Plan and specifically the decision to move forward with a cap and trade program which is designed to significantly reduce GHG emissions and deliver a lower carbon future for all Ontarians.

    However, given the Premier’s commitment to transparency around energy pricing, the OCC believes that the OEB should reverse their decision and align with other Canadian jurisdictions on this issue.
