RT-GCG Program Cost Recovery Framework

The IESO is considering possible changes to elements of the Real-Time Generation Cost Guarantee ("RT-GCG") program. The IESO is proposing a new cost recovery framework which will clarify and increase the transparency for market participants of costs eligible to be submitted for recovery under the program.

The IESO encourages all stakeholders in Ontario's electricity sector, or their representatives, with an interest in this initiative to participate in this engagement. This initiative will be of particular interest to generators who participate in the RT-GCG program. 

The Stakeholder Engagement Plan may be subject to review and update as the process evolves and meaningful revisions are required, to ensure that stakeholders have the opportunity to contribute their input on this initiative.

All comments and enquiries about this engagement can be directed to engagement@ieso.ca.
