LIEN's proposal for a low-income rate assistance program

A proposal for an Ontario Home Energy Affordability Program was developed for LIEN by Roger Colton, U.S. low-income energy expert, and submitted to the Ontario Energy Board. The proposal 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.
