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.
