OEB announces new farm stray voltage measures

TORONTO, ONTARIO - The Ontario Energy Board announced amendments to the province's electricity Distribution System Code related to stray voltage as it affects the farm sector.

"Farm stray voltage" refers to voltage or current occurring at a location on the farm where livestock make contact with it and which may have a negative effect on livestock.

The Code amendments provide standards and procedures for electricity distribution utilities to follow, including steps to be taken when responding to a farm stray voltage complaint.

The amendments mark the completion of the Board's Farm Stray Voltage Consultation, during which farm customers and a range of other farm industry stakeholders contributed their views and perspective.
