IESO Invests in Projects that Increase Indigenous Participation in Ontario's Energy Sector
April 29, 2021
Indigenous communities and organizations across Ontario are moving forward with plans to transform how they meet their energy needs, choosing cleaner, more reliable and more affordable options. To that end, the IESO is providing $7.1 million in funding to 61 recipients that will support energy planning, renewable generation, energy-efficiency measures, as well as skills development and training.
This funding, through the IESO’s Energy Support Programs, will help enable Indigenous communities and organizations to manage their energy costs and support opportunities for their participation in the electricity sector.
A full list of funding recipients is available and the next funding window will open near the end of Q2 2021.
