Here’s what people are saying about Ontario’s Nuclear Advantage
“Investing in nuclear refurbishment at the Darlington and Bruce Power facilities will provide a welcome boost to Ontario’s economy and support affordable and reliable baseload energy.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
