Innisfil Hydro Distribution Systems Limited has applied to raise its electricity distribution rates. Learn more. Have your say.

Innisfil Hydro Distribution Systems Limited has applied to the Ontario Energy Board to increase the amount it charges by approximately $5.07 each month for the typical residential customer beginning on January 1, 2015. Other customers, including businesses, may be affected as well.

The requested rate increase is set using a formula which is tied to inflation and other factors intended to promote efficiency. The rate increase also includes Innisfil Hydro’s request for incremental funding due to the construction of new corporate headquarters.
