Making The Right Energy Choices

Effective long-term energy planning must support the desired outcomes for both electricity rates and carbon emissions produced through the generation of electricity for the province.

Since 1944, the Power Workers’ have helped keep the lights on in Ontario’s homes and businesses.

Since 1944, the Power Workers have helped keep the lights on in Ontario’s homes and businesses. We live in Ontario and raise our families here. We are consumers too. We want what’s best for all Ontarians now and for years to come: that’s why we’ve used our knowledge, experience and resources in seeking better decisions for Ontario’s electricity system.

Over the last decade, some of Ontario’s policy decisions have caused rising electricity prices, a temporary electricity surplus, a move away from a universal electricity price, and higher costs for ratepayers and taxpayers.

Ensuring low-carbon, reliable, secure, safe and reasonably-priced electricity for Ontarians in the future means making smart, “good-for-Ontario” decisions today. Extending the operation of the Pickering Nuclear Station to 2024 and refurbishing the Darlington and Bruce Nuclear Stations will deliver tremendous environmental and economic benefits for Ontario.

Ontario’s energy decisions should:

  • Reflect transparent, independent cost/benefit analyses;
  • Reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions;
  • Create and maintain high-value local employment;
  • Safeguard a uniform electricity price for all Ontarians; and,
  • Ensure energy security that’s not dependent on imports.

Expert analyses show that Ontario should be investing in its established energy advantages.
