Authorize as a Program Participant

All wind and solar generation facilities (variable generators) connecting to the IESO-controlled grid, or connecting to a distribution system with an installed capacity of 5 MW or greater, must participate in the centralized forecasting program and be authorized as a program participant.

Please contact the IESO at to get started in your registration as a program participant for centralized forecasting.

A variable generator must also complete the facility registration process and equipment registration tasks prior to reaching commercial operation.
