By increasing its electricity trade with Quebec,  Ontario can save billions of dollars compared to the costs of rebuilding aging nuclear plants.  And by taking advantage of Quebec’s immense power storage capacity, it can also ensure that renewable power is available 24/7.  

Quebec, meanwhile, needs to diversify its export markets and improve the rock-bottom prices it is currently earning for electricity exports in order to create new provincial revenues for everything from schools to hospitals.  Ontario, as well, can use the debt financing that would have to be dedicated to a Darlington Nuclear Plant re-build to instead support critical infrastructure improvements, like expanded transit.
