North & East of Sudbury Region Electricity Plan Posted

April 13, 2023

The North & East of Sudbury region electricity plan – Integrated Regional Resource Plan (IRRP) – that considers electricity demand and supply conditions over the next 20 years, is now online. The electricity plan recommends a package of solutions to address emerging needs related to operations and asset renewal identified for this region, including: 

  • Investigate options to improve operability of existing Dymond TS capacitors and adding reactive devices in the Kirkland Lake area;
  • Proceed with plans to replace circuits reaching end-of-life in the Iroquois Falls and Cochrane areas with a like-for-like replacement, subject to confirmation before these projects are committed;
  • Continued monitoring of load growth at Ramore TS in the Kirkland Lake area in preparation for the next planning cycle; and,
  • Investigate and recommend solutions to load security issues in the area north of Timmins in the next iteration of bulk system planning in Northeast Ontario.
