Ontario Demand: Represents the energy supplied by the IESO-Administered Market to meet demand within Ontario. The IESO calculates Ontario Demand by subtracting scheduled exports from Total Market Demand. It is also equal to the sum of all loads (consumption) within Ontario supplied from the market, plus all line losses incurred on the IESO-controlled grid.
Market Demand: Represents the total energy supplied by the IESO-Administered Market. The IESO calculates Market Demand by summing all output from generators registered in the market plus all scheduled imports to the province. It is also equal to the sum of all load supplied from the Market plus exports from the province, plus all line losses incurred on the IESO-controlled grid.

This graph provides a summary of Ontario's transmission-connected generator output, by fuel type, for 2010 and 2015. Production by nuclear units remain high, comprising 60 percent of generation in 2015. There has been rapid growth in wind and solar resources - output from both types of supply have increased significantly. With coal generation now phased out, former coal generating stations such as Atikokan and Thunder Bay have been converted to biofuel. The 2015 chart does not include the 488 MW of wind generation capacity or 1,838 MW solar generation capacity connected within distribution systems.

The IESO uses the "Hour Ending" naming convention for the hours in a day. For example, Hour 1 is from 12 a.m. to 1 a.m., Hour 2 is from 1 a.m. to 2 a.m. Hours 1-24 are the hours from midnight one day through midnight the next day. Eastern Standard Time is used year round.
*Preliminary values for average weighted monthly price will be available soon after month end. Values will be finalized 10 business days after month end.
