If the Ontario Government proceeds with its plan to rebuild 10 aging nuclear reactors, there will be little room for continued growth in renewable energy in our province. Nuclear power is inflexible, costly and produces deadly radioactive waste that has to be stored for thousands of years. Meanwhile, costs for solar, wind and other renewable technologies are dropping rapidly. Wind power is already cheaper than the projected cost of power from rebuilt reactors in Ontario. Improving our energy efficiency is cheaper still.
Ontario has made great progress in just a few years in building a new renewable energy industry. Why would we turn back to an outdated technology that nobody else wants — there hasn’t been a Candu reactor sold anywhere in the world in 30 years — and sacrifice our place in the world’s fastest growing energy sector — clean, green, renewable power?
