Negotiations with Lake Erie LP to Move to Next Phase
April 14, 2022
The Minister of Energy has directed the IESO to continue negotiations with Lake Erie LP and enter into a contract by August 15, 2022, if certain conditions are met. The IESO has been assessing the project as part of the Ministry’s unsolicited proposals process. The Lake Erie Connector is a proposed 1,000 MW high-voltage underwater transmission line that would provide the first direct interconnection between the wholesale electricity markets operated by the IESO in Ontario and PJM Interconnection LLC in the United States.
