Ontario has the chance to purchase electricity from Quebec at one-third the price of power from re-built nuclear reactors.  This would mean big savings for electricity consumers in Ontario — from homeowners to manufacturers.

While recently signing a deal to supply  Massachusetts with electricity over the next 20 years at a cost of 3 to 5.3 cents per kilowatt hour, the CEO of Hydro Quebec said that he would be happy to make a similar deal with Ontario

Meanwhile, Ontario Power Generation has submitted a plan to raise the rate it is paid for nuclear power to 16.5 cents per kWh — three times more than what Quebec is asking.

Quebec has a big power surplus and our existing transmission system connections can carry enough power to replace the electricity used in Ontario produced by the Pickering Nuclear Station.  And because Quebec power is such a great deal, we can even afford to increase our transmission capacity to bring in more power and still save billions!

Today all major renewable energy projects are selected through competitive bidding.  But we have never assessed whether nuclear energy makes economic sense or required it to compete with other sources, such as Quebec water power.  It’s time to end backroom nuclear deals and allow safer, lower-cost sources of power to compete fairly.

Please ask your election candidates, “Do you support signing a long-term power import agreement with Quebec that will save us billions of dollars?” 

Breaking election news: The NDP and Green Parties have said they will close Pickering in August if elected.  The Liberals say they will keep it running until 2024.  The PCs have refused to state a position. 

And sign the petition below to show your support for saving big on hydro costs.

Making a deal with Quebec is the smart power option
