Parry Sound/Muskoka - Regional and Community Engagement

The IESO invites municipalities, First Nation and Métis communities, stakeholders, community groups and the general public to provide input on the implementation of a 20-year electricity plan being developed for the Parry Sound/Muskoka area. Regional planning will examine the reliability performances of the transmission and distribution infrastructure and where appropriate, examine options to mitigate the potential impact of power outages to communities and businesses in the area.  Relevant resource options to meet local electricity needs, such as conservation and demand management, distributed generation, large-scale generation, transmission and distribution are considered through the development of an Integrated Regional Resource Plan (IRRP). The Working Group developing the plan consists of staff from Lakeland Power, Midland PUC, Newmarket-Tay Power, Orillia Power, PowerStream, Veridian Connections, Hydro One Distribution, Hydro One Transmission and the IESO.
