Metro Toronto Regional Infrastructure Plan • The Regional Infrastructure Plan provided a consolidated summary of needs and recommendations for Toronto over the near and mid-term (five to 10 years). This plan expanded on the Central Toronto Integrated Regional Resource Plan • The near and mid-term needs were confirmed to be addressing capacity shortfalls at Runnymede, Horner and Copeland transformer stations. These needs have previously been identified and were being addressed by Toronto Hydro in cooperation with Hydro One 2. The Central Toronto Integrated Regional Resource Plan • The IESO formally confirmed a long identified issue of capacity shortfalls in areas within central Toronto. As the issues had been identified prior to the formal report, plans and discussions to address the shortfalls and explore alternative solutions with the IESO and Hydro One were underway 3. Hydro One’s Metro Toronto Northern Sub-region Needs Assessment • The net demand forecast did not identify any station capacity issues within the study period • No further action is recommended at this time • The Metro Toronto Northern Sub-region Needs Assessments did not impact OUR CITY I TORONTO HYDRO 27 Toronto Hydro’s Distribution System Plan 4.
