Northwestern Integrated Regional Resource Plan (NW IRRP) Submission

The IESO has initiated development of the NW IRRP and is seeking inputs to help build a forecast for the region’s needs. The PWU recommended that IESO factor in electrification due to climate action as laid out by the Thunder Bay Net Zero Strategy and recognize the important role of the emission benefits and critical location of the Atikokan Biomass Generation Station in serving the region and mitigating the supply shortfall in Southern Ontario.
