Provincial changes relating to conservation programs

On Thursday, March 21, the Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines announced significant changes impacting Ontario’s electricity industry. The ministry has directed the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) to discontinue the 2015-2020 Conservation First Framework and establish a scaled down Interim Framework for the balance of 2019 and 2020, delivered centrally by the IESO with continued funding from electricity rates.
