Posted: July 12, 2017

Collus PowerStream welcomes feedback

DSP available for review and comment on Collus PowerStream website

Collingwood, ON, June 14, 2017 - Collus PowerStream Corporation is pleased to present its draft five-year Distribution System Plan (DSP) of our planned investments in the electrical distribution infrastructure to service present and future customers from 2018 to the end of 2022. They are designed to provide timely value to our customers by aligning reliability and service quality with customer expectations.

Customer and other stakeholder input over the years has influenced these planned investments. The draft DSP gives all stakeholders the opportunity to review and comment on it. Collus PowerStream welcomes feedback on the proposed investments and direction to help Collus PowerStream maintain current levels of service, ensure plan alignment, and finalize the prioritization and scheduling of investments.

Collus PowerStream is presenting the draft DSP for review and comment to enhance the two-way communication with our customers and other stakeholders, and to ensure Collus PowerStream is able to respond effectively to the needs and expectations of our customers.

Collus PowerStream believes that working together on this consultation will further enhance existing relationships with our customers and other stakeholders, and help achieve positive value-added outcomes that support the Ontario Energy Board’s Renewed Regulatory Framework Objectives.

The Distribution System Plan will be available for review and comment through to the fall of 2017.

  • “We appreciate your time to review our draft 5-year Distribution System Plan, and provide us with feedback through the website survey link. This is your opportunity to ensure your voice is heard. Thank you for your participation in this planning exercise.” - Larry Irwin, Collus PowerStream, Vice President of Operations


  • Distribution System Plans, as prescribed by the Ontario Energy Board, are the backbone of the new approaches to rate setting. Consolidated Distribution System Plans integrate all investments and reflect good asset management practices. Planning is the key to meeting expectations for predictable and fair rates, pace and prioritization of investments.

Collus PowerStream is a jointly-owned utility by the Town of Collingwood and Alectra Utilities (formerly PowerStream) that provides reliable electricity to customers in Collingwood, Stayner, Creemore and Thornbury.
