2013 Electricity Supply Mix Ontario’s reliance on nuclear energy increased over the last year, as it continued to account for most of the province’s baseload needs - roughly 60 per cent of total production. Other baseload supply such as hydro and wind generation output also increased - to 23.4 per cent and 3.9 per cent respectively.

Gas generation output decreased by more than three per cent to 16.8 TWh, a result in part of lower demand peaks throughout the year. Coal generation, which by the end of 2013 had ceased production in southern Ontario, generated only 2.0 per cent or 3.1 TWh of total production. Demand for electricity in Ontario remained largely unchanged over the year, with overall consumption at 140.7 TWh. This figure represents a slight decrease from 2012, which was a leap year. Local, or embedded generation, and demand management efforts have contributed to flattening demand for electricity from the provincial power grid. Mother Nature also triggered a number of unexpected demand reductions during 2013. On July 8, severe floods resulted in a demand drop as thousands of customers lost electricity service across the GTA. This was the greatest loss of load since the 2003 blackout. The ice storm in late December also resulted in a loss in demand. To view the entire release or for more information, please visit www.ieso.ca.

2014

Electricity Rates effective May 1, 2014 HCH 2014.03

Local electricity delivery charges are changing The Ontario Energy Board has approved a decrease in delivery charges effective May 1, 2014. For a residential household using an average of 800 kWh per month, there is a decrease in delivery charges of 8.7% or $4.96. The monthly bill for a General Service < 50kW customer consuming 2000 kWh per month will decrease by 7.0% or $7.43. The delivery portion includes the recovery of costs to build and maintain the distribution system as well as pass through costs for the transmission of electricity. Line loss factor has been reduced to 1.0655 per kWh (a reduction of 0.0025 per kWh). These line losses on electricity charges have been factored into the distribution charges calculated amount and are no longer reflected in the electricity charges portion of the estimated total bill as they have been in the past.

Breakdown of electricity bill charges Haldimand County Hydro’s distribution rates, the portion of the electricity bill that is related to Haldimand County Hydro’s operations, represents only 27.3% of the total electricity charges found on the bill, and includes a $0.79 monthly pass through charge paid directly to the IESO for costs associated with managing and maintaining the Smart Meter infrastructure. The chart below shows the percentage breakdown of the related electricity charges for a residential customer using 800 kWh a month and billed on Time-of-Use rates.

Reviewing your bill Haldimand County Hydro is required to display your electricity charges in a summarized format under headings that have been standardized across the province. The standardized bill format makes it easier for you to understand your electricity charges no matter who your local electricity distribution company is. The following are the standardized headings: Electricity Charges Global Adjustment Delivery Regulatory Charges Debt Retirement Charge Under each standardized heading are several rate components. These are displayed in the schedule of rates. Haldimand County Hydro has posted its complete Rate Order on its website and it can be viewed at www.haldimandcountyhydro.ca or at the Ontario Energy Board at www.ontarioenergyboard.ca.
