LIEN proposal for a low-income rate assistance program

A proposal for a ratepayer-fundedĀ Ontario Home Energy Affordability Programhas been developed for LIEN and filed at the OEB in a gas distribution rate hearing. The proposal, which is available on LIEN's website, has five major components: rate affordability, arrears management, crisis intervention, conservation and demand management, and consumer protections. It advocates that Ontario's low-income consumers should not be paying more than 6% of their total household income on energy.
