The Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) works at the heart of Ontario's power system. The IESO delivers key services across the electricity sector including: managing the power system in real-time, planning for the province's future energy needs, enabling conservation and designing a more efficient electricity marketplace to support sector evolution.
Ontario's power system is operating reliably through the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check this site for updates.
Building Indigenous Energy Capacity
The IESO is providing $7.1 million in funding to 61 Indigenous communities and organizations across Ontario to support energy planning, renewable generation, energy-efficiency measures, as well as skills development and training.
How communities are reshaping Ontario's electricity system
(And how Ontario's electricity planners are helping them)
As Ontario’s electricity needs grow and priorities shift to more flexible solutions, new technologies are taking centre stage at the community level and realigning power system planning from the ground up.
