Ontario's 2017 Long-Term Energy


The Ontario Government released its 2017 Long-Term Energy Plan (LTEP), Delivering Fairness and Choice. The plan comes after a year-long consultation, which saw engagement from across the province. The OCC as put together a Rapid Policy Update including a high-level synopsis of the plan, including the Ontario Chamber of Commerce’s analysis and comparison to our Long-Term Energy Submission, Leading the Charge

OCC's Position on the 2017 LTEP: 

The OCC has long been active in advocating for a principled and pragmatic approach to energy planning. We were encouraged to see that Ontario’s Long-Term Energy Plan 2017: Delivering Fairness and Choice is broadly aligned the OCC’s previous policy stance. The 2017 LTEP, echoes the OCC’s call for the need to ensure competitive and affordable rates through new procurement models.

The OCC was pleased to see the strong commitment made to Ontario’s nuclear sector, including the refurbishment projects at Ontario Power Generation's (OPG) Darlington site and Bruce Power’s facility in Tiverton, as well as a renewed commitment to pursue continued operations at OPG’s Pickering site. We also applaud government on the initial integration of Ontario’s CCAP into our energy planning system.

While today’s plan places an emphasis on ensuring affordability and flexibility, the OCC will continue to advocate that further rate mitigation strategies must be developed and aimed specifically at the business sector. Read the full Rapid Policy Update
