The PA has updated the timeline, which can be found on the For GCP Participants tab of the GCP website. The submission period for the Expression of Interest form (and Memorandum of Agreement) is expected to open in Q3 2022 and NOT April 2022, as previously indicated. These draft forms can also be found on the For GCP Participants tab of the GCP website. Kindly note that these forms may be subject to change upon approval of the Regulations.

Please find attached the latest draft of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for the Green Choice Program (GCP). This is a draft reference document for applicants who intend to aggregate with other applicants to meet the 10,000 MWh minimum to submit an Expression of Interest form (EOI). As a requirement of the EOI, all applicants within an aggregate must sign a document acknowledging their intent to aggregate (e.g., the attached MOA). In addition, the PA will follow up with applicants who have previously indicated an interest in aggregating to help facilitate the process.
This MOA (or another governing document of the applicants’ choosing) will be appended into the final version of the EOI.
