Innisfil Hydro Distribution Systems Limited
Management Discussion and Analysis for Year 2013
NEW RESIDENTIAL/SMALL BUSINESS SERVICES CONNECTED TON TIME: Innisfil Hydro achieved 89.90% which is 0.10% below the industry standard to connect residential/small commercial customers on time. This slight slippage is attributable to a 16% annual increase in connections in 2013 over 2012.
SCHEDULED APPOINTMENTS MET ON TIME: Changes in regulatory reporting requirements in 2012 for cable locates contributed to Innisfil Hydro's achieved appointment met metric of 83% which is below the industry standard. As a result, Innisfil Hydro initiated a process review for appointments met (including cable locates) and has implemented the appropriate process changes in the first quarter of 2014 to increase this metric.
