PWU Submission on Critical Transmission Infrastructure ERO 019-7336

The Ministry of Energy (MoE) is seeking feedback regarding the priority of three Critical Transmission Infrastructure projects in Northeast and Eastern Ontario. The PWU recognizes the urgency of these projects and supports the Ministry’s prioritization of these three transmission projects by Hydro One in order to accelerate the development. However, the PWU also recommends that the detailed design of the projects: better reflect the emerging demand presented in the government’s Powering Ontario Growth Report; extend the operations of the Atikokan Generating station to reduce risk; advance the GTA East planning; and ensure that the IESO considers the higher demand implications of electrification in all of its regional planning reference scenarios.
