How to Participate

Oral vs. Written Hearings
There are two types of OEB hearings – oral and written. The OEB intends to proceed with this application by way of a written hearing. If you think an oral hearing is needed, you can write to the OEB to explain why. Your submission must be received by the OEB and copied to Bullfrog Power Inc. by March 7, 2016.
If you wish to obtain information from the applicant that is in addition to the application materials already filed with the OEB (i.e. the “pre-filed evidence”) and that is relevant to the hearing, you must request it by written interrogatories filed with the OEB, and delivered to the applicant, on or before March 8, 2016. Please ensure that each interrogatory request includes a reference to the relevant page or item in the pre-filed evidence.
The applicant shall file complete responses to each interrogatory with the OEB, and deliver them to all interested parties in the proceeding, no later than March 18, 2016.
You may express your views on the application by filing a written submission with the OEB. Your submission must be received by the OEB and copied to Bullfrog Power Inc. by March 28, 2016.
If Bullfrog Power Inc. wishes to respond to any submissions, its reply shall be made in writing, and filed with the OEB and copied to any party who made a written submission by April 7, 2016.
All written submissions sent to the OEB will be placed on the public record, which means that the written submissions will be available for viewing at the OEB’s offices and will be placed on the OEB’s website. If the written submission is from a private citizen, the OEB will remove any personal (i.e., not business) contact information from the written submission (e.g., the address, phone number, and e-mail address of the individual), before placing the written submission on the public record. However, the name of the individual and the content of the written submission will become part of the public record.
As stated elsewhere in this notice, you must provide a complete copy of your written submission (including your name, contact information, and everything written in the submission) to the applicant.
How to File Documents with the Board
All written submissions filed with the OEB must quote file number EB-2016-0024 and clearly state the sender’s name, postal address, telephone number and email address. You must forward two paper copies and, if possible, an electronic copy in Word format and in searchable PDF format, of your written submission to the OEB and one copy to the applicant. All written submissions to the OEB should be directed to the attention of the Board Secretary at the address below, and be received no later than 4:45 p.m. on the required date.
