DR Auction results announced
December 10, 2015
The IESO today announced the results of the December 2 and 3 demand response (DR) auction, a competitive process through which demand-side resources were selected to be available to reduce their electricity consumption, as needed, during the summer of 2016 and winter of 2016/17 commitment periods. This is an important development as it shifts the procurement of DR resources from contracts to a market-based mechanism that is more flexible and cost-effective for ratepayers.
Full results of the auction are available here.
