Gas Phase Out

As many municipalities press to phase out gas-fired generation in Ontario, the IESO is evaluating the implications of options to do so. The PWU recommended that IESO focus on emission reduction not the gas plants themselves, consider electricity demand growth from decarbonizing the economy, incorporate the full carbon price on gas-fired generation, and enable low carbon sources like nuclear for baseload and biomass for regional needs.
