Have Your Say! Ontario's Long Term Energy Plan

Sep 12, 2013

The Ontario Ministry of Energy has recently revealed their Long-Term Energy Plan (LTEP) and is looking for YOUR feedback on the process. It's very easy to have your say, and important that the government hears feedback from all Ontarians.

How to Have your Say:

Reviewing the LTEP

Here are some of the key priorities of the Ministry's plan:

  • the government plans to make conservation a top priority
  • the government is committed to ensuring that nuclear energy provides a significant portion of Ontario’s electricity generation, and plans to refurbish existing plants and possibly build 2 additional reactors
  • natural gas is considered to be a good complement to the supply mix, although the GHG emissions are higher
  • the government will continue to invest in renewable energy, with plans to make 900 MW of new capacity available for the Small FIT and microFIT programs. They plan to replace the large FIT program with a competitive procurement process.

Renewable is Doable!

Ontario’s next long-term energy plan would better serve electricity ratepayers if it did not include new nuclear reactors, and reviewed alternatives to repairing the province’s aging reactors, says a new report from the Pembina Institute and Greenpeace. Read the full report here.
