The regional planning process for the Renfrew region is complete and will be undertaken again in 2020, unless there is sufficient load growth or an event requires that it begin earlier.

Regional Planning Process

The local transmitter (Hydro One) 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 Needs Assessment report can be viewed on Hydro One’s website.
