As a result of population growth and strong economic activity, the demand for electricity in our service territory and wider region is expected to grow substantially over the next 20 years. Already, much of the existing electricity infrastructure in the area is reaching capacity.

Integrated options for future energy conservation, distributed generation, and electricity infrastructure expansion and investment need to be developed. The following planning groups have identified the near-term and medium-to-long-term electricity supply needs, to ensure the continued reliability and supply security for electricity in the Region.
