An Ontario LSE Model

DATE: Thursday, June 21, 2018
TIME: 7:30 AM – 9:30 AM
LOCATION: Aird & Berlis LLP, 181 Bay St.,
Brookfield Place, 17th fl,

Come join us for a member discussion on the policy case for an Ontario Load-Serving Entity (LSE) model.

The OEA retained Power Advisory and Aird & Berlis to develop a discussion paper to evaluate the value-proposition of an Ontario LSE model and provide recommendations for a proposed regulatory framework and transition plan.  The discussion will address the policy rationale for, and benefits of, a model that would allow Ontario LDCs to choose to transition to an take on an LSE role and specifies statutory changes that would be required for implementation.

The proposed Ontario LSE model recognizes that Local Distribution Companies (LDC) are operating within a rapidly changing environment which includes increased customer participation, significant technological advances, and more customer choices to manage energy needs and costs. The discussion will consider the Ontario context given current activities of the Market Renewal Program, resource mix and power system planning regime.

A draft paper will be circulated to the membership for review prior to the meeting.
