Important News Regarding Amendments to the Planning Act for Renewable Energy Generation Facilities

The siting restrictions in O. Reg. 274/18 which were administered by electricity distributors such as Hydro One have been replaced by amendments to the Planning Act (Ontario) that puts siting and planning requirements for renewable energy generation facilities under municipal oversight.

If we have provided you with a Connection Impact Assessment ("CIA") and a Connection Cost Agreement ("CCA"), it does not mean that you are permitted to build your Generation project in the municipality where your Generation project is located. As such, we recommend, if you have not done so already, that you immediately discuss municipal permitting and approvals requirements with the planning department in the municipality where your Generation project is sited before you proceed.
