Global Adjustment Class A Eligibility
In 2020, the Ontario Government introduced an Industrial Conservation Initiative (ICI) peak hiatus for ICI participants to allow industrial and commercial businesses to focus on recovering from the impacts of COVID-19. Class A customers do not need to anticipate and reduce their electricity demand during the peak hours during the May 1, 2020 – April 30, 2021 base period as they work to return to full levels of operation. Instead, Class A customers will have their peak demand factor from the July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021 adjustment period used to determine their global adjustment charges during the July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2022 adjustment period. For additional information, refer to the Ministry’s news release.
The peak hiatus applied to Class A customers participating in the ICI for the July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021 adjustment period. Accordingly, any Class B customer wishing to enter the ICI in the July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2022 adjustment period would have their peak demand factor assessed based on their demand during the peak hours during the May 1, 2020 – April 30, 2021 base period.
