The proponent identified below is proposing to submit a proposal to the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) to design, build, and operate a Large Renewable Project for the generation of electricity under the IESO’s Large Renewable Procurement (LRP). The LRP is a competitive process for procuring long-term energy supply from large renewable energy projects with a capacity greater than 500 kilowatts. At the conclusion of the LRP, the IESO may award contracts for successful projects up to the specified procurement targets for each renewable fuel: 300 megawatts (MW) for wind, 140 MW for solar, 75 MW for waterpower, and 50 MW for bioenergy.
This notice is being distributed to notify members of the public of a public community meeting that has been scheduled to discuss the Large Renewable Project proposal. Information regarding the proponent, the Large Renewable Project proposal, and the meeting details are described below. This public community meeting is being held as part of the early community engagement requirements of the LRP. The public community meeting will present details about the Large Renewable Project and its proposed connection line. Representatives of the proponent will be available to discuss the Large Renewable Project and the overall LRP process. Should this Large Renewable Project be awarded a contract, the Large Renewable Project would need to obtain all required permits and approvals and conduct any required further community engagement activities. Further details regarding the LRP are available at www.ieso.ca/lrp.

Proposed capacity of the Large Renewable Project (MW): up to 170 MW
Proposed connection point of the Large Renewable Project: Connection to transmission line/circuit C27P or C28C
Proposed location of the Large Renewable Project and proposed connection line
The project area, illustrated in the map above, is to be located entirely within the Township of Addington Highlands. The project, minus the connection line, is proposed to be located on crown and private lands near the town of Denbigh, to the east and west of Highways 41 and 28. The connection line will run primarily on crown lands through the centre and southwestern portions of the Township of Addington Highlands. The provincial government has divided Ontario into grid areas known as crown land grid cells for the purpose of identifying the location of potential wind projects. The following crown land grid cells may contain project components:
