The future is green

Costs for renewable energy sources like wind, solar and water continue to fall rapidly.  Technology for producing and storing green energy is also quickly advancing.  But Ontario has chosen this moment to jump off the green energy bandwagon and head back to the past by spending tens of billions of dollars on outdated nuclear technology instead.

Ontario was a leader in adopting green energy and creating jobs, but nuclear interests pushed hard to drop efforts to deploy wind and solar and return to nuclear technology from the 1960s.  Now Ontario plans to rebuild 10 aging reactors that have a long history of poor performance and safety concerns.

In the United States, jobs in solar and wind are growing faster than almost any other sector.  But Ontario has now jumped off this good jobs train.

Meanwhile, places like Quebec and California are reaping the benefits of leadership in renewable energy.  Even Alberta is turning green, securing record-low prices for wind energy and rapidly deploying solar while creating new jobs and businesses.

Nuclear energy is shrinking worldwide thanks to its high costs and high risks. Ontario needs to get back on track by putting job-creating wind and solar front and centre again in its energy plans. 

Ontario also has the advantage of being able to  work with Quebec to backstop wind and solar with low-cost water power.  It’s a win-win solution that won’t leave us with a radioactive future.

So ask your election candidates: “What will you do to restore Ontario’s leadership in renewable energy?”  And sign the petition below to support a 100% renewable future.

We need to make Ontario a leader in green technology!
