As reported here two days ago, I have been seeking an updated near-term forecast for Ontario’s overall power bill — the so-called revenue requirement –from the Ontario Power Authority. Today, I received this refusal from the OPA.
After discussing your request with my planning colleagues, we feel the best source of the information that you are requesting will be the Long-Term Energy Plan which is expected to be released by the provincial government shortly. This document will contain the most up to date information.
The Ontario government’s 2010 Long Term Energy Plan omitted mention of the revenue requirement outlook for the province.
As I previously noted, the Wynne government’s commitment to “Open Government” does not appear to apply to Ontario’s electricity bills.

Here is a previous report I published in the National Post based on a Freedom of Information request to the OPA to obtain an estimate of the revenue requirement current to a year ago.
