The OPA conducts regional planning through its Integrated Regional Resource Planning (IRRP) process, where local stakeholders collaborate in the development of integrated solutions for maintaining a reliable supply of electricity to Ontario communities. The map below shows Ontario’s 21 electricity regions.

The objective of the IRRP process is to develop long-term electricity plans that thoughtfully integrate all relevant resource options, such as conservation and demand management, distributed generation, large-scale generation, transmission and distribution.
