North of Moosonee Regional Planning

For regional planning purposes, the North of Moosonee region includes the communities of Fort Albany, Kashechewan and Attawapiskat.

Until 2000, these communities were part of Ontario Hydro's Remote Communities and were supplied electrically by diesel generators.

From 2001 to 2003, these communities were connected to the Hydro One network. The majority of transmission in the area is now owned by Five Nations Energy Inc. (FNEI) which was incorporated in 1997. FNEI also supplies a significant amount of mining load.

The local distribution company providing service to customers in the North of Moosonee region is FNEI.​

Current status: The local transmitter has completed the Needs Assessment for this planning region and found that there were no needs that required regional coordination. With the findings of the Needs Assessment, this completes the regional planning process for this planning cycle. The process will begin again within the five-year regional planning time frame, or earlier if there is sufficient load growth or a trigger event that requires initiating the process before that time.

A copy of the transmitter’s Needs Assessment report can be viewed on the transmitter’s website linked in the “See Also” section of this page.
