Ontario’s Smart Grid Fund: Investing in Our Clean Energy Future

Building a smart electricity grid is a key part of Ontario’s plan for a clean energy future.  

The Smart Grid is a modern electricity system. It is composed of intelligent electricity infrastructure that uses advanced communications and control technology to improve the flexibility, reliability, and efficiency of the electricity system. The Smart Grid will help consumers’ conservation efforts, manage energy costs and integrate new beneficial technologies like electric vehicles and storage.

Launched in 2011, Ontario’s Smart Grid Fund supports the growth and advancement of the province’s electricity grid. By investing in Ontario-based projects, we will bring the benefits of a smart grid to homes and businesses while providing economic development opportunities and creating jobs.
