how the grid works
help & how to
Electricity is produced at more than 140 generating stations in Ontario. Our primary sources of energy are nuclear, hydro, gas/oil, wind, biofuel and solar.
An extensive network of transmission lines move electricity at very high voltage over long distances; from generators to where it is needed.
Utility sub-stations and transformers reduce the high voltage electricity from generators to a safe level for delivery to homes and businesses.
HOMES & BUSINESSES
We depend on safe and reliable electricity to power our homes and businesses. How and when we use energy impacts the whole grid.
THE SMART GRID
Innovations like smart meters, electric cars and renewable energy are all part of building the modern, reliable and clean smart grid of the future.
