The key role that LDCs play in CDM in OntarioAn IndEco article
Since the rebirth of conservation and demand management (CDM) in Ontario in 2005, Ontario’s LDCs have delivered a large number of diverse and innovative CDM programs to their customers. LDCs are known and trusted by their customers and this is a major contributing factor to the LDC success in helping the provincial government to meet its CDM targets.
Funding and approval for the LDC’s CDM comes from two sources: from the LDC’s electricity rates set by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) and from the Ontario Power Authority (OPA). LDCs design and deliver the programs approved by the OEB, while the OPA designs its own programs, aspects of which are delivered by the LDC.
