FOCA Update - mid August 2019
We're sending you an extra Elert this month, 
with some quick & important updates!

Update: Hydro One Seasonal Electricity Customers
This week, Hydro One has distributed an email letter to their Seasonal Customers, related to the Ontario Energy Board's (OEB) proposal to eliminate the Seasonal rate class, which will negatively impact many FOCA members. 

See a copy of the letter, important links, and background information about this pending change, here:   https://foca.on.ca/electricity-pricing/

FOCA expects the OEB to issue a decision on this matter by late August 2019. As we have done in the past, FOCA will be advising our members of the ruling, and will be undertaking whatever opportunity is available to intervene with the OEB to represent the interests of our members. 
 

FOCA works year-round on behalf of waterfront property owners and waterfront Ontario.
