Ontario Energy Board proposes changes to improve timeliness to connect renewable generation projects to the grid



    TORONTO, May 14 /CNW/ - Today the Ontario Energy Board (the Board) issued
a Notice of Proposal to Amend the Distribution System Code (DSC) to ensure
viable generation projects, particularly renewable generation projects, are
connected to the distribution system in a timely manner.
    The Board believes it is important to move forward with these proposed
code changes at this time to address the current backlog of generation
projects waiting to connect to the distribution grid and to establish clear
rules related to capacity allocation for distribution connected generation.
    The Board is confident the proposed amendments are consistent with the
Green Energy and Economy Act, 2009 (GEA), but recognizes further amendments
may be required in the future as the role of renewable generation in Ontario
evolves.

    The Ontario Energy Board regulates the province's electricity and natural
gas sectors in the public interest. It envisions a viable and efficient energy
sector with informed consumers served by responsive regulation that is
effective, fair and transparent.
