  • In the last week of January the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) initiated stakeholder consultation regarding an initiative to explore the sale of Environmental Attributes (EAs) that it holds pursuant to the contracts it has with suppliers of electricity. This rather sudden policy development appears to be the result of direction from the provincial government that will likely be reflected in a formal “Direction” from the Minister of Energy to the OPA in the near future.
