Grid-LDC Interoperability Standing Committee

The Grid-LDC Interoperability Standing Committee is a forum for its members to be informed and engaged on matters relating to the coordination of IESO and LDC-controlled grid resources in order to enhance the reliability and efficiency of Ontario’s electricity grid.

Committee members will discuss and identify current operations opportunities from local distribution companies (LDCs) that have potential to interact with the IESO and to highlight areas where further collaboration and data sharing opportunities may exist.  

Questions regarding the Grid/LDC Standing Committee or its membership can be directed to Diljeet Singh
