The Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) works at the heart of Ontario's power system. The IESO delivers key services across the electricity sector including: managing the power system in real-time, planning for the province's future energy needs, enabling conservation and designing a more efficient electricity marketplace to support sector evolution.
Engaging the Sector
The IESO regularly seeks input from stakeholders and community representatives on initiatives that affect them. We do this through a variety of forums, including the Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) whose members represent interested energy sector parties.
At the August 23rd SAC meeting, market renewal and the mid-term review of Ontario’s conservation framework were discussed. Participants also heard from Michael Cleland with the University of Ottawa’s Positive Energy Project who discussed the efforts to strengthen public confidence in energy decision-making.

Final Round of FIT Contracts

The IESO has released its final round of contract offers under this program, offering 390 contracts representing about 150 megawatts (MW) of small-scale renewable generation comprised of solar photovoltaic (PV) and bioenergy projects. Read more.
