On November 23, 2010, the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) received a directive from the Ministry of Energy to negotiate for new contracts with the owners or operators of the non-utility generators (NUGs) where these would have cost and reliability benefits to Ontario electricity consumers. A list of the eligible NUG facilities was included in Appendix A of the directive.
The OPA will engage with NUGs individually regarding next steps. NUGs who have questions or comments about the process are encouraged to direct them to: NUGs@ieso.ca
Hydroelectric NUG facilities may be eligible for the Hydroelectric Contract Initiative.
