Current Status

The first regional planning cycle for this region is complete. The Regional Infrastructure Plan (RIP) for this region was completed and published in February 2017. The RIP recommended further assessment of some of the mid and long-term needs and to identify any new needs in the region through a Needs Assessment followed by a Scoping Assessment. The Needs Assessment for the region was completed in May 2017 to be followed by a Scoping Assessment.

 As a recommendation of the Scoping Assessment, an Integrated Regional Resource Plan (IRRP) for the Bronte Sub-region was initiated and  completed. An IRRP was also completed for the Brant Sub-region. The IESO issued a handoff letter requesting Hydro One, in consultation  with relevant LDCs, develop a wires solution to address the near-term needs in the Brant Area.

 A Local Plan was developed to address multiple local needs in the region that do not require further regional coordination.
