Transmission

Entegrus Transmission Inc. (“ETI”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Entegrus Inc., was licenced by the Ontario Energy Board as a transmission company on May 26th, 2011 becoming one of Ontario’s seven licenced transmitters.  

Since incorporation ETI has been dedicated to the development and connection of renewable energy generation in Ontario and improving the overall reliability, safety and cost-effectiveness of electrical transmission in this province.

As part of our commitment to support the Province of Ontario’s 2017 Long Term Energy Plan : Delivering fairness and choice, ETI has invested over $10 million in transmission related assets to enable renewable energy generation in Southwestern Ontario.  ETI’s success has been based on establishing large-scale partnerships that benefit generators, local communities and ratepayers.  To date ETI’s investments have facilitated the connection of 270 MW of wind generation in the Municipality of Chatham-Kent.

In addition to supporting the objectives of the Long Term Energy Plan, benefits that accrue to ratepayers, communities and developers include:

  • Meeting Ontario’s energy needs through a rational and cost effective expansion of Ontario’s transmission system
  • Lower environmental impacts as less transmission infrastructure is developed when generators share infrastructure
  • Energy cost savings generated when assets are optimized through regional planning
