Ontario’s 2017 Long-Term Energy Plan committed to enhancing the province’s net-metering framework to enable third-party ownership of virtual net-metering (VNM) demonstration projects. In a VNM arrangement, customers are billed on a net-metered basis for eligible electricity generated from a generation facility that is not connected directly to the customers’ load (i.e., not located behind the customer’s meter). The generation facility may be located behind a ‘host’ load customer meter, or directly connected to a distribution system. Credits accrued from electricity conveyed to the distribution system from the generation facility are applied to associated customer accounts to reduce their electricity bills. Attend this session with Rob Sinclair, Manager System and Sector Development, Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) to learn more about the future of VNM solar electricity generation in Ontario.
