The Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) works at the heart of Ontario's power system. The IESO delivers key services across the electricity sector including: managing the power system in real-time, planning for the province's future energy needs, enabling conservation and designing a more efficient electricity marketplace to support sector evolution.
Planning for Grid Operations
The IESO’s 18-Month Outlook looks at Ontario’s demand forecast, as well as the adequacy of generation and transmission resources over the next 18 months. Read the report and supporting materials.
Participate in A Regional Electricity Forum
Hear from industry experts, local leaders and members of the community on how electricity can be harnessed to support the growth, resiliency and vibrancy of communities. Five Regional Electricity Forums will be held around Ontario this fall. Each forum will address regional-specific interests. The next forum will be in London on November 23.
See Forum Overview for an event near you.
The Rate You Pay Depends on the Time of Day
Depending on the time of day and day of the week, most residential and small businesses pay on-, mid-, or off-peak Time-of-Use (TOU) rates for electricity. The TOU display shows the current rate and the time the next rate starts. Getting familiar with TOU rates and schedules can help you reduce electricity use or shift electricity use to a lower rate period.
