Independent Electricity System Operator

EB-2010-0046

The Board has rendered an oral Decision on an application by the Independent Electricity System Operator (the “IESO”) for the approval of its proposed expenditure and revenue requirements and its proposed fees for the 2011 fiscal year.

 

The Board accepted the parties’ settlement proposal in which the parties had reached agreement on all issues except Issue 3.3 concerning the amount of the accumulated operating surplus that should be retained by the IESO as an operating reserve. The IESO had proposed retaining $13.1 million of the total accumulated surplus of $23.3 million. The Board denied that amount and instead decided that the IESO should retain $5 million as an operating reserve and return the remainder, estimated at $18.3 million, to the market participants in the next billing period (May 2011).
