Reliability looks good to March 2021
While provincial energy demand remains stable, and resources are ready and adequate for the next 18 months, outage coordination may face increasing pressure by summer 2020 as significant capital upgrades, most notably the Darlington Unit 2 refurbishment, coincide with routine maintenance.
That’s one of the findings of the fall 2019 edition of the IESO’s Reliability Outlook, which provides the sector with a big-picture energy overview for the 18-month period from October 2019 to March 2021. This analysis aims to help market participants plan their outages, while drawing attention to considerations that could affect the reliability of Ontario’s electricity system.
