The New Conservation First Framework

The Ontario Power Authority (OPA), in response to a direction from the Minister of Energy, is implementing a new six year conservation framework.  The Conservation First Framework is designed to reduce electricity consumption by 7 terawatt-hours (TWh) or seven billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) by December 31, 2020. The Conservation First Framework will enable Local Distribution Companies (LDCs) to submit their Conservation and Demand Management (CDM) Plans between November 2014 and May 2015.  Most of the currently available province-wide saveONenergy programs will continue to be available throughout 2015 to allow for a seamless transition to the new framework.
