A Coal Free Ontario

3 Dec

Despite population growth, economic recovery and new developments, Ontario’s peak energy demand is decreasing. This is maily due to conservation efforts through generation and time use rates. In fact, Ontario’s peak energy demand has decreased by 10% from 2006 to 2009. Currently, Ontario generates 29 031 MW of coal-free energy. That’s 23% more than the forecasted peak energy demands for 2010. Based on these facts, I propose the following call to action:

Let’s urge Premier Dalton McGuinty to commit to idling Ontario’s coal plants in 2010. Premier Dalton McGuinty can be contact at  www.premier.gov.on.ca/feedback/feedback.asp?Lang=EN. Let’s encourage him to lead Ontario to a coal free future.

Thank you to the Ontario Clean Air Alliance for making information like this available to the public http://www.cleanairalliance.org/copenhagen.

    This is great news! A coal free future is definitely something that is attainable, and not beyond limits. In response to this, has their been a large increase in the electrical energy use, more so than expected?
