The Ministry of energy has created a web page tracking new clean energy projects that are up and running.
A great site to find out what is really going on in the energy sector. Tyler provides keen insights into the current situation and trends that are developing. Renewables, conservation, efficiency, electric vehicles, storage and more!
Check out OSEA’s second commercial “Renewable Energy”. Be sure to talk to your candidates about why conservation and renewable energy are important to you and why you want them to support the Green Energy Act and FIT.
(Sept. 15, 2011, Toronto, ON) Responding to the growing discussion about the future of green energy in Ontario, the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association (OSEA) today unveiled a pair of television advertisements profiling the strengths and benefits of an Ontario-made green energy economy.
This report examines how scaling back Ontario’s plans to develop renewable energy would affect electricity prices, using an integrated energy system simulator to compare two main scenarios.
The first scenario is based on Ontario’s current Long-Term Energy Plan, in which a large part of new electricity generation comes from additional renewable capacity supported under the Green Energy Act; the second scenario tests the effect of eliminating the Act and largely expanding natural gas in place of future renewable resources.
Behind the switch: pricing Ontario electricity options finds that Ontario consumers would see virtually no relief from high electricity prices if the province cancelled its support for renewable energy under the Green Energy Act.
In fact, the study indicates that investing in renewable energy today is likely to save Ontario ratepayers money within the next 15 years, as natural gas becomes more expensive and as the cost of renewable energy technology continues to decrease.
Debunking misinformation about the Green Energy Act and Feed-in tariff program, Tyler Hamilton dismantles Wente’s truthiness.
The British arm of giant financial consultant Ernst & Young’s 2011 issue of its “Renewable energy country attractiveness indices" concludes that fixed feed-in tariffs (FITs) are preferable to premium-based FITs as well as bidding systems.
No nuclear project in Ontario’s history has ever been com- pleted on time or on budget. Currently, retrofit projects at the Point LePreau Nuclear Station in New Brunswick and
the Bruce Power Station in Ontario are running years behind schedule and billions of dollars over budget. Ontario ratepayers and taxpayers, who are still facing a mountain of debt from previous nuclear projects, deserve no less than a firm guarantee that they will not be left once again with a vast pile of stranded debt from a Darlington Rebuild Project, particularly when less risky and more financially viable alternatives are readily available to meet our power needs.
