Regulation + market + contract = best rates

Ontario has a new system for regulating electricity prices in the province, which is said to be a blend of regulatory, contract, and market mechanisms.  Under the new plan, municipalities, hospitals, and users who consume up to 250,000 kWh—that’s pretty much all but large businesses—will see their electricity prices capped.  Those who consume more will leave the province.

Just kidding.  Most of them will probably stay.  But the convolutions of the Ontario plan are laid out in a client memo from William McLean at Canada’s Borden Ladner Gervais LLP.
