York Region Initiative

York Region is a rapidly growing community with an estimated population of 900,000 in 2005. While the southern portion of York Region had its electricity infrastructure upgraded in 2004, the northern portion has continued to grow without improvements since 1990.

The OPA’s goal is to recommend a long-term solution that is technically feasible, timely, and cost effective, while considering its impact on communities.

Submission to the Ontario Energy Board, September 30, 2005.
The process used to develop this recommendation included extensive consultation, technical and financial analysis of the options, as well as a procurement process.
