Hydro One Networks Inc.
Hydro One Networks, our largest subsidiary, is involved in the planning, construction, operation, and maintenance of our transmission and distribution network.
Our transmission system carries electricity from generating stations to local distribution companies and large industrial customers through our high-voltage network of transformer stations, transmission towers and wires.
We own 97% of transmission in Ontario with almost 30,000 km of high-voltage transmission lines. We also own and operate 26 interconnections with neighbouring provinces and states, which allow electricity to flow into and out of Ontario.
Our distribution system delivers electricity at lower voltages to homes, farms and businesses through our network of hydro poles and power lines. Our network is the largest in the province, with 121,000 km of wires serving 1.4 million customers, mostly in rural areas.
