  • “Nuclear power, which generates zero greenhouse gas emissions and plays a key role in making Ontario one of the lowest GHG-emitting electricity jurisdictions in the world, should continue to be explored as a cost-effective energy option.”

    —Ontario Chamber of Commerce

  • “Through the life-extension investments at Darlington and Bruce Power, as well as operating the Pickering station until 2024, the region will continue to benefit from low-cost, clean and reliable power, while supporting economic growth and job creation over the coming decades.”

    —Council of the Great Lakes Region

  • “Between 2017 and 2064, clean nuclear, when compared to alternatives, will avoid between $12 billion and $63 billion in carbon costs that ratepayers would have to fund if this output was replaced by fossil fuels.”

    —Council of the Great Lakes Region

  • “The Bruce Power and OPG life-extension programs are important to ensure a cost-competitive supply of electricity and represent billions of dollars of supply chain opportunities for Ontario manufacturers.”
