GTA North (York Region)
2015 Regional planning process outcome
The regional planning cycle begun in 2013 for the York sub-region was completed in April, 2015 and an Integrated Regional Resource Plan (IRRP) was released.
In the near term, three transmission projects are recommended to address capacity and reliability needs; these projects are already under development by Hydro One and Alectra Utilities (formerly PowerStream).
In the medium to long term, York sub-region's electricity system is expected to reach its capacity to supply growth in the early to mid-2020s based on current projections. If the growth materializes, there will be a need for additional new supply in the region. The Working Group will seek community input on possible solutions.
