The Winter 2023 issue of EDA’s The Distributor magazine is out now. This issue highlights a legacy of innovation that spans more than a century of service by Ontario’s local hydro utilities. Beyond the foundational pillars of safety, reliability, and sustainability, local hydro utilities have evolved into more than “just” service providers and emergency responders, becoming innovators, customer advocates, and technological pioneers. Find out how EDA members are redefining what it is to be an LDC in the 21st century; integrating new technologies and offering sustainable energy solutions tailored to meet diverse customer needs.
