Energy Partnerships Program

Energy Partnerships Program

The IESO is developing a new renewable energy support program, the Energy Partnerships Program (EPP), to streamline existing program offerings while improving the ability of communities and organizations to develop renewable energy projects.  

The Energy Partnerships Program will consolidate the Community Energy Partnerships Program (CEPP), the Municipal and Public Sector Energy Partnerships Program (MPSEPP), the Aboriginal Renewable Energy Fund (AREF), and the Aboriginal Transmission Fund (ATF) Programs, and will continue to support Indigenous Communities, Co-operatives, Municipalities and Public Sector Entities in the participation of Ontario’s energy sector.

The final EPP Rules and a summary of changes will be available at www.ieso.ca/EPP in mid-June and the IESO will begin accepting applications by the end of June 2016. For more information on the EPP Program, please contact EPP Staff at EPP@ieso.ca or 416-969-6317. Please ensure you subscribe to the IESO's Funding Programs list, here to be notified of updates to the EPP.

The Energy Partnerships Program will consist of two funding streams:

1. The Partnership Stream; and

2. The Project Development Stream, which includes the Remote Project Development Sub-stream.

The following table sets out a summary of the funding streams and applicant and project eligibility under the EPP:
