Public Forum on Ontario’s combined heat and power

Pollution Probe and the Ontario Ministry of Energy invite you to attend an evening public forum this Tuesday in Toronto on “Ontario’s Combined Heat & Power Potential”. This event will feature Thomas Casten, whose book Turning Off the Heat, published in 1998, outlined how “energy recycling” can lower harmful CO2 emissions and energy costs.

Casten argues that Ontario can profitably eliminate coal-fired generation by providing over 9,000 megawatts of energy with combined heat and power through distributed generation.  Participants are encouraged to consider this proposal and ask questions.
