Submission on IESO’s Resource Adequacy Engagement – April 2021

With Pickering Nuclear ceasing operations in 2025 and new procurement mechanisms to rely on 3-year procurement contracts, Ontario risks being left without long-term, cost-effective, viable supply solutions. In this submission, the PWU recommends IESO advance long-term competitive mechanisms to better leverage existing resources while seeking new resources and meet both the urgent mid-term capacity shortfall and long-term needs.
