  • Balancing the supply of and demand for electricity in Ontario and then directing its flow across the province’s transmission lines
  • Overseeing the electricity wholesale market where the market price of electricity is set
  • Planning for the province’s medium- and long-term energy needs and securing clean sources of supply to meet those needs
  • Fostering the development of a conservation culture in the province through programs such as saveONenergy
