Renewable Energy Generation
Generation Restriction Notice
On May 15, 2014, GrandBridge Energy Inc. (formerly Brantford Power Inc.), received notice from Hydro One of a generation restriction on the Brantford Transformer Station Z bus, effective May 1, 2014. Hydro One’s monthly review of the Brantford Transformer Station identified a short circuit limitation resulting in the restriction of future connection of all generation.

For a map of feeders affected by the Hydro One restriction please see Brantford Transformer Station Z bus restrictions. Note all even numbered Brantford Transformer Station feeders are included in the restriction.
GrandBridge Energy (formerly Brantford Power) connects Distributed Energy Resources to Ontario’s electricity grid. These Distributed Energy Resources include solar panels, combined heat and power plants, energy storage facilities, and natural gas-fueled generators.
If you generate electricity from renewable sources, you may take advantage of Ontario’s “net metering” initiative. Net metering allows you to send excess electricity generated from renewable resources to the distribution system for a credit toward your energy costs.
For more information about the net metering program, please see the Ontario Regulation 541/05 – Net Metering and Ontario Regulation 274/18 – Siting Restrictions or email [email protected].
