A Lower Carbon Economy

Our focus on delivering energy to customers naturally limits our impact on the environment when compared with energy generation intensive businesses.

We delivered 19 times more energy to our customers than we generated in 2017.

While we own a small amount of fossil fuel-based generation, that does not lessen our commitment of reducing carbon emissions. The carbon intensity of energy delivered to customers in 2017 decreased by more than 60%. This decrease was largely related to our acquisition of transmission-focused ITC in 2016. Further, we decreased greenhouse gas emissions within the Fortis group by 6% in 2017 in comparison to 2016.

We are also endeavouring to give customers choices to meet their energy needs and support the shift to a lower-carbon economy. We are collaborating on new initiatives with customers such as smart grid options, natural gas for transportation and electric vehicle charging to optimize their use of energy. We’re delivering and helping customers in their transition to a lower-carbon economy.
