Details

The Ontario Energy Board is launching a comprehensive review of reliability and power quality in the Ontario electricity sector. The Reliability and Power Quality Review (RPQR) is aligned with the OEB's Strategic Plan goals to protect the public and drive energy sector performance.

The OEB has not reviewed its approach to electricity distributor reliability performance since the launch of the Electricity Distribution System Reliability Standards initiative in 2010. For transmitter reliability, the OEB last assessed the delivery point reliability issues in 2008, in terms of the scope of those standards, following an OEB Decision in 2005 that established the policy framework. Given changes in the sector and customer expectations it is timely to undertake this comprehensive review of the overall reliability performance framework.
