These include nuclear, gas-fired and renewable generators (like wind farms) that have contracts with the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) and generators that have contracts with the Ontario Electricity Financial Corporation (OEFC). It also includes Ontario Power Generation’s (OPG) “base load” generating stations that need to run at or near capacity all the time to meet basic demand. Lastly, the Global Adjustment reflects the costs of conservation programs.
