New transmission line will support growth in Northwestern Ontario
October 25, 2018
The IESO has requested Hydro One Inc. start development work for a new electricity transmission line in northwestern Ontario that will support future economic growth.
Beginning development work now will ensure the region is well positioned to provide reliable electricity supply to new businesses and other Ontario consumers in the northwest. A need for new electricity supply could emerge as soon as the early 2020s if there is high growth in the mining sector, including in the Ring of Fire. Read the news release on our webpage.
