Report Outlines Benefits of Extending Operations of the Pickering GS

The PWU has released a study prepared by Strategic Policy Economics that outlines the environmental and economic benefits of the extending the operating life of the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station by four years until 2024. The study demonstrates that this extension would avoid greenhouse gas emissions by over 18 million tonnes of carbon dioxide, lower electricity system costs by over $1.5 billion, preserve 40,000 person year equivalent jobs, and inject $7 billion into the Ontario economy.
