TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:
WHEREAS the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) has declared that as nearly one in three multi-unit residential complexes will no longer qualify for the Ontario Energy Rebate (OER) for common areas;
WHEREAS electricity prices will increase by 30% when the rebate is removed;
WHEREAS the Ontario Energy Rebate, which was specifically intended for residential homes, is being removed from residential common areas unfairly hurting thousands of apartment and condo dwellers across Ontario;
THEREFORE, we the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to:
direct the Ontario Energy Board to stop the rate hike for residential common area accounts in multi-unit complexes.
