The Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) will host a public webinar on September 13 at 10:00 a.m. to provide an update on the development of a bulk electricity plan for Northeast Ontario to address emerging needs being driven by strong economic growth and decarbonization initiatives. Register here to participate in a webinar where the IESO will provide an overview of the options considered to meet the needs and provide a foundation for future growth, and seek input on draft recommendations.
Webinar materials will be posted on the engagement webpage in advance and written comments will be invited until October 4. More information about this electricity planning initiative can be found online.
This follows an earlier webinar held on April 26 that sought input on key considerations around scope, needs and potential solutions. Feedback received and the IESO’s responses are posted online.
Bulk electricity planning takes up to a 20-year outlook and the process provides an opportunity for communities, stakeholders and interested parties to provide feedback about anticipated needs and priorities, and to contribute to the development of the options for meeting this area’s future electricity needs.
All interested parties are invited and encouraged to participate including, but not limited to, local municipalities, Indigenous and Métis communities, businesses, stakeholders and members of the general public.
