How we'll use your input

Kingston Hydro’s distribution rates must be approved by the Ontario Energy Board based on applications by the utility. The rate-setting process is open and transparent, and offers opportunities for public participation.

Kingston Hydro must submit evidence to demonstrate the amount of funding it needs to safely and reliably distribute electricity to its customers.

All input collected will be considered in developing Kingston Hydro’s distribution system and company plans and will be included with Kingston Hydro’s application to its regulator, the Ontario Energy Board, as part of the rate-setting process.
