Wind Power in Ontario
The IESO constantly monitors wind generation on Ontario's transmission system.
Instructions are available to embed the IESO Wind Tracker on your homepage or blog.
Ontario is at the forefront of wind energy in Canada, with more than 1,700 MW of wind generation capacity connected to the province's power grid. As system operator, the IESO plays a fundamental role in helping bring wind projects into service and ensuring that Ontario's power system can effectively support increased levels of wind generation.
