The Ontario Energy Board has released its decision awarding EPCOR the right to be the natural gas distributor for Kincardine, Arran-Elderslie and HuronKinloss.

The Board decided that since EPCOR is promising a lower total ten (10) year revenue requirement as compared to that proposed by Union Gas, and given that this criterion was amongst the most important for the OEB, EPCOR is declared the winner of the competition.

The next step is for EPCOR to file another application with the OEB, known as the “Leave to Construct”.

Mayor Eadie said “we congratulate EPCOR and trust that they will file their Leave to Construct application as soon as possible”.
