Province-wide Pay-for-Performance Program Engagement

The IESO is seeking input to inform the design and implementation of a pay-for-performance program for multi-distributor consumers (MDCs) as part of the Conservation First Framework.    

Input from stakeholders will be a key consideration of program design and implementation and the IESO invites a broad range of interested parties to participate in this engagement initiative. It is anticipated that MDCs and LDCs may have a direct interest in this engagement.

All comments and enquiries in this stakeholder engagement can be directed to
