On February 3, 2011, the Minister of Energy directed the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) to proceed with a pilot program to sell, track and audit the sale of a limited number of environmental attributes (EAs) from OPA contracted renewable energy facilities. A link to the Directive can be found below.
On January 28, 2011, the OPA hosted a stakeholder session to introduce this topic and request stakeholder feedback.
