IESO releases the latest 18-Month Outlook

September 20, 2018

The outlook for the reliability of Ontario’s electricity system remains positive for the next 18 months, with adequate domestic generation and transmission to supply Ontario’s demand under normal weather conditions. Over the forecast period (Q3 2018 – Q1 2020), peak demands will continue to face downward pressure from savings achieved through energy efficiency, embedded generation output and the Industrial Conservation Initiative (ICI).

Over the same period, about 1,470 MW of new supply – 985 MW of gas, 375 MW of wind, 100 MW of solar and 15 MW of hydroelectric – is expected to be connected to the province’s transmission grid. Learn more: read the full report.
