Planning in Northwest Ontario
The planning process for this region is underway to identify future electricity needs and options to ensure an adequate and reliable supply continues to be provided for its customers. This second cycle of planning commenced with the development of a Needs Assessment, a process led by Hydro One.
The Scoping Assessment Outcome Report is now available and outlines the needs and specific areas of the region that require more comprehensive regional planning through an Integrated Regional Resource Plan (IRRP). A Terms of Reference also set out parameters for the IRRP and composition of the Technical Working Group tasked with developing the 20-year electricity plan for the Northwest region.
An engagement initiative has commenced for interested parties to learn more about electricity planning activities undertaken for the Northwest region and offer input for consideration into the development of the Scoping Assessment and Integrated Regional Resource Plan (IRRP).
