The Global Adjustment (GA) charge is a system peak related charge for customers in Ontario IESO territory. The line item charge supports the sustained deployment of energy in Ontario. Opting into the Industrial Conservation Initiative (ICI) gives you the opportunity to save on your GA charge. Any customer participating in the ICI is charged a GA fee proportional to their energy usage during the five highest system peaks of the year.
ES/Forecaster from IHI Energy Storage is a software product designed to enable users to reduce their Ontario Global Adjustment charges by predicting those five system peaks in time for users to reduce their energy consumption, and thereby lower their costs.
