Toronto Hydro Corporation reports its year-end financial results for 2023

TORONTO, March 1, 2024 /CNW/ - Toronto Hydro Corporation (the Corporation) today announced its consolidated financial and operating results for the year ended December 31, 2023.

Net income after net movements in regulatory balances for the year ended December 31, 2023, was $139.9 million compared to $163.9 million for the comparable period in 2022. The decrease over the prior year was primarily due to lower amounts deferred into regulatory accounts, higher financing costs and higher operating expenses. This was partially offset by higher distribution revenue, higher other gains, lower depreciation and amortization expense, and higher other revenue.

The Corporation is continuing with critical work in its grid investment plan to maintain safety and reliability, support a growing city, enable clean energy, and prepare for and respond to extreme weather.
