Independent Power Producers

If you want to generate electricity and sell it to us at wholesale prices, you can talk to us about becoming an Independent Power Producer (IPP).

IPP electricity rate

In most cases, the power produced by a small IPP is intermittent because it relies on sun, wind or stream flow, and it often enters our system when it’s least needed. As a result, this power is not highly valued and we pay the same rate that we’d pay for the lowest-cost alternate source. However, each IPP will be looked at on an individual basis and priced accordingly.

Apply to become an IPP

Please review the Facility connection requirements and call us at 1-866-436-7847, Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. We’ll talk about your project and guide you through the application process.
