Hydro Ottawa halts replacement of older smart meters
Ottawa Citizen
Hydro Ottawa has halted the early replacement of thousands of first-generation smart meters after the Ontario Energy Board turned down a request that would have allowed it to recover the cost from ratepayers. In a decision last month, the OEB agreed with its own staff and two interveners that replacement of the Rex one smart meters was not necessary. As a result, the board denied Hydro Ottawa's request to create a new "variance account" to track the cost of replacing the meters and charge it to hydro customers.

Pellet solution will save on power plant conversion costs
Northern Ontario Business
Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is embarking on a bold experiment to extend the life of the Thunder Bay Generating Station by five years. Instead of spending $400 million to convert the 306-megawatt coal burner to natural gas, the cash- trapped Ontario government has elected to go with a specialty wood pellet that handles and burns like coal. The city's two MPPs, Michael Gravelle and Bill Mauro, made the announcement on Nov. 15 that the plant will use "advanced biomass" over a five-year period starting in early 2015.

Transmission line secures key approval from ISO New England
Renew Grid
The Northern Pass, a proposed transmission line carrying hydroelectric power to New Hampshire and New England, has obtained I.3.9 approval from ISO New England, the operator of the region's power grid. The I.3.9 process determines whether the transmission line can reliably interconnect with the New England grid, Northern Pass says. By approving the project's I.3.9 application, ISO New England determined Northern Pass would have no significant adverse effect on the reliability or operating characteristics of the regional energy grid and its participants, Northern Pass adds.
