Nuclear, renewable power generation to increase in Ontario, IESO says

In its latest 18-month outlook, the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) in Ontario said over the next 18 months more than 3,000 MW of capacity will be added to the grid. IESO said 1,500 MW will come from nuclear power generation, while another 1,500 MW will come from renewables.

By February 2014, total wind and solar generation connected to the transmission and distribution systems in Ontario will reach approximately 4,800 MW.

IESO also said total energy consumption is forecast to remain flat in 2012 before shrinking slightly in 2013 as a result of several factors, such as Global economic conditions, increased embedded generation capacity, conservation initiatives and time-of-use rates.
