The purpose of these programs is to reduce the peak demand and to reduce the costs and environmental impacts associated with new generation, transmission and distribution systems. This results in economic benefits to the customer and reduces the impact on the environment. A CDM target has been established by the OEB. Toronto Hydro tracks and reports progress against this CDM target to ensure programs are achieving the desired result.
