Merging energy agencies won't keep electricity rates from rising
The opposition parties say the Liberal government's decision to merge only two of Ontario's numerous energy agencies won't result in the savings needed to keep electricity rates from rising even higher. The Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) will merge with the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) on Jan. 1, 2015 "to increase efficiencies and contain costs,'' according to the Ministry of Energy.
