Interchange Enhancements

The IESO is planning to make changes with respect to the submission of e-Tags and the management of those transactions specifically within the mandatory window.

The Interchange Enhancements project is aimed to improve the operation and management of interchange scheduling related tasks by enhancing existing interchange scheduling systems and processes.  To support this objective, the project aims to limit manual intervention and error margins and reduce time spent on the phone for both market participants and the IESO’s control room operators.  One of the main benefits the IESO is pursuing will be to enable market participants to manage e-Tag ID changes electronically, without the need for IESO operations approval within the existing mandatory window.

All comments and enquiries on this engagement initiative can be directed to engagement@ieso.ca. Documents referenced on this page, but not posted, can be obtained by contacting engagement@ieso.ca with a link to the web page that lists the document and advise whether it needs to be provided in an accessible format. Please allow a minimum of one business day for a response
