Top Notch and effective Regulatory representation
IGUA is the sole voice advocating the interest of large gas consumers at the Régie, Ontario Energy Board and Canada Energy Regulator among a sea of 10-30 other intervenors representing environmental, residential, commercial, and institutional interests. IGUA membership “leverages” the money your company spends with those of other large users in addressing issues of concern to you. Additionally, regulatory “Cost Awards”, not available to private companies, reduce the cost of IGUA’s intervention work. Absent IGUA’s cost effective regulatory intervention regulators would set rates without consideration for the impact on large users.
Since 1973, IGUA’s effective regulatory interventions and policy advocacy have generated significant and real cost savings for industrial gas users in Ontario and Quebec.
