Connection Process

Hydro One has a three-phase process for distribution connections to our grid. Get details for each phase below:

Role of Key Players in the Connection Process

Phase 1: Application

  • Contact Hydro One to initiate your connection:

    • If you are a small- or medium-sized business (over 50 kW monthly demand), please call us at 1-888-664-9376 or complete the online form

    • If you are a large business with transformation/nameplate capacity greater than or equal to 2 MVA, please complete the Large Customer Contact Form.

  • A Hydro One representative will schedule an initial customer meeting to discuss your project, the connection process and information needed to get things started

  • You will be asked to complete a New Customer Connection Information (NCCI) form.

Phase 2: Assessment and Estimate

Phase 3: Construction

  • You must schedule and complete an Electrical Safety Authority inspection and provide documentation to Hydro One

  • Once ESA authorization is received, Hydro One will conduct a final inspection and complete your connection

  • If you are a registered market participant with the IESO, you will need to enter into a Distribution Connection Agreement with Hydro One.

Important Connection Considerations

Depending on the size and scope of your project, approvals may be required throughout the process and could have a significant impact on project timelines. They can include, but are not limited to:

  • Environmental approvals to construct facilities on environmentally sensitive lands

  • Municipal approvals and permits, including land easements and land acquisitions

  • Sufficient capacity available or the need for future expansion.

Once You’re Connected

Once you are connected, Hydro One’s dedicated Business Customer Centre advisors are here to:

  • Help resolve inquiries regarding rates, energy usage, your service, billing and payments, meter data access and any other account changes

  • Provide detailed billing breakdowns and strategic advice for energy management

  • Help with the process and expectations for service upgrades and new connections

  • Forecast energy costs of new equipment, new services or service upgrades

  • Provide advice on Hydro One policies and processes, including how they may relate to Ontario Energy Board (OEB) regulations and Independent Electricity System Operator’s (IESO) programs
