Hydro One Corporation (Hydro One) is planning to construct a transmission line in Ontario, Canada.
The project involves the construction of a 13km, 230kv transmission line and transfer station from Highway 401 to Leamington.
The project will include the construction of distribution substations, transmission stations and related infrastructure, the laying of electric lines and the installation of electric feeder systems.
On July 16, 2015, Ontario Energy Board (OEB) issued a decision and order granting Hydro One Networks leave to construct the project in the Windsor-Essex region. The Decision and Order includes standard conditions of adherence to the system impact assessment and the connection impact assessment, and requires construction to commence within twelve months.
On August 28, 2015, OEB issued a letter stating that given the complexities and implications of the issues relating to cost allocation, including potential changes to the provisions in the Distribution System Code and the Transmission System Code, the OEB will not proceed with cost allocation through an adjudicative process, but will review these issues from a policy perspective.
On January 7, 2016, the OEB initiated its policy review. Hydro One has proposed that its share of this transmission investment be shared proportionately between Hydro One and the other identified beneficiaries in the area. The OEB consultation will review the concept of proportional benefit and its
application, as the policy and regulatory framework to flow transmission costs through to identified distribution-connected customers is not in place.
Hydro One is in the process of obtaining necessary approval.
The project involves the construction of a 230kv transmission line and transfer station from Highway 401 to Leamington in Essex County, Ontario, Canada.
The US$70 million project includes the following:
1. Construction of distribution substations
2. Construction of transmission stations
3. Laying of electrical lines
4. Installation of electric feeder systems
