Eliminating Renewable Energy Requirements  (source: Environmental Registry)

We are proposing to repeal sections of the Electricity Act, 1998 (EA) and the Ontario Energy Board Act, 1998 (OEBA) that were introduced under the Green Energy and Green Economy Act, 2009 to promote and prioritize the development of renewable energy. Ontario has built a clean energy supply. Prioritizing renewable generation is no longer appropriate. Going forward, Ontario will ensure value for ratepayers by allowing all resources to compete to meet system needs.

The regulation is effectively spent and no longer applies to any Projects.
