INTRODUCTION MATERIALITY AND STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT Regional planning Our Distribution System Plan reflects the needs and issues identified in three regional planning exercises: 1. The Central Toronto Integrated Regional Resource Plan — In progress • The IESO has confirmed the long identified issue of capacity shortfalls in the Runnymede Transformer Station, Manby Transformer Station and Copeland Transformer Station areas • Toronto Hydro has been planning for these challenges and has discussed possible solutions with the IESO and Hydro One • The projects contained within our Stations Expansion Program7, filed with the OEB as part of our CIR application, reflect the completed regional planning consultations for Central Toronto Spadina Ave. Yonge St. WINDSOR CECIL TERAULEY GERRARD TORONTO HYDRO 2014 CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY REPORT 25 Ossington Ave. Bathurst St. Bloor St. Toronto Inner Harbour Queen St. Lake Ontario STRACHAN COPELAND BASIN CHARLES ESPLANADE Cable Crossing below water vulnerable to flooding !

In the spring of 2013, we began construction on Copeland Station to help take some pressure off of neighbouring stations. This is the first new downtown transformer station to be constructed since 1955. The new transformer station will add the electricity capacity of 144 MVA, which is equivalent to powering approximately 70 condominium buildings. In addition to providing much needed improved capacity to the downtown core, the station will also allow us to complete critical maintenance at Windsor Transformer Station, which is currently supplying power to a number of large customers in the financial district. Copeland Station is one of the most complex projects ever undertaken by Toronto Hydro. For more information about this project, please visit torontohydro.com/copelandstation 7 Our Stations Expansion Program is referenced in the 2015-2019 CIR Rates Application and covers projects that serve to increase the electrical capacity of various stations.
