With the province struggling to reduce spending and its deficit, there has never been a better time to ditch the “nuclear at any cost” mentality than now! Ontario has paid a steep price for its fixation with costly and underperforming nuclear energy, including racking up more than $20 billion in debt – and we’ve still got the waste and decommissioning to deal with.

Don’t let nuclear projects blow our electricity bills through the roof! – new leaflet
Despite the fact that Ontario electricity use has fallen by 10% (while GDP increased) since 2005, plans to spend tens of billions of $$ on new nuclear projects are moving full-steam ahead. That’s money that could be spent on energy efficiency (where Ontario still lags behind most of its major competitors), more renewable power, and safe combined heat and power technology.

Ontario coal-fired electricity production hits 50-year low and electricity demand down 10%
Last year, Ontario’s coal-fired electricity generation fell to its lowest level in half a century. In 2011, just 2.7% of our electricity generation was coal-fired, our lowest level of coal use since 1961.
And there’s more good news: Ontario’s electricity consumption in 2011 also continued its downward trend with total electricity consumption 10% lower than in 2005.
