Transmission

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
