February 6, 2015, 4 PM
The Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) wishes to thank all those who submitted feedback on the draft Large Renewable Procurement Request for Proposals (draft LRP I RFP) and draft Contract (draft LRP I Contract) during the feedback period. In order to review and consider feedback received from stakeholders, the IESO is extending the posting date of the final LRP documents to March 3, 2015.
While the LRP I RFP and LRP I Contract are being finalized, the IESO has released an update document to provide Qualified Applicants and interested stakeholders with more information on some of the changes that are expected to be incorporated into the final LRP documents. The update document also outlines a new process for Qualified Applicants that will be used to provide supplementary information on connection availability for certain network Circuits identified in the Circuit TAT Table. The update document is available on the LRP web page.
Please also note that from this date forward, all new information on the LRP will be posted to the new LRP pages on the IESO website. All previously posted information and material on the LRP continues to be available on the legacy LRP pages. This legacy material will be migrated to the new LRP pages soon.
Any questions on the changes to the LRP documents or the screening process should be sent to LRP@ieso.ca.
