Routine Voltage Reduction Test Cancelled

January 20, 2022

In light of the ongoing impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, the routine voltage reduction test scheduled for February 1 has been cancelled. Based on feedback received from participants, the test will be re-scheduled for the next peak season.

The test is an important tool for ensuring the reliability of Ontario's electricity grid. Voltage reductions lower demand quickly and minimize the likelihood of service interruptions, helping the IESO maintain the reliability of Ontario’s power system during a variety of unplanned occurrences. More information about voltage reductions is available on the IESO website.
