Interruptible Rate Pilot Update
February 9, 2023
Work to develop an Interruptible Rate Pilot (IRP) for large electricity customers continued with the presentation of the draft Pilot rules and contract at an engagement meeting on February 7. Materials from that meeting, as well as the session recording, are available on the Interruptible Rate Pilot engagement page. This engagement followed the receipt of a letter from the Minister of Energy in response to the IESO’s detailed Pilot design proposal submitted in late 2022.
In the letter, the Minister also noted his support for the IESO to continue to engage with the hydrogen community to explore options to adapt the IRP and develop a future pilot or program that is tailored for hydrogen producers.
