OTTAWA (September 5, 2017) –Get the facts on nuclear power and energy pricing in Ontario

Low-cost nuclear power meets 60% of Ontario’s energy needs. It is the backbone of the province’s electricity system, and the reasons are clear:

  • The cost of nuclear power generation in Ontario is significantly lower than the average residential price. It provides families and businesses with a low-cost source of electricity that saves money compared to other energy options.
  • Ontario’s three nuclear facilities – Bruce Power, OPG Darlington and OPG Pickering – create jobs and economic growth in communities across the province.
  • Nuclear power helps Ontario meet its climate change goals by keeping the air clean.
  • Modern health care around the world capitalizes on Ontario’s role as a leading supplier of Cobalt-60.

“Nuclear energy is a key contributor to the quality of life enjoyed by Ontarians – from providing the province’s baseload clean electricity to bringing clean air, jobs and health care.  What other energy system does all this?  That’s why we call it Ontario’s Nuclear Advantage.” said Dr. John Barrett, President and CEO of the Canadian Nuclear Association.

It’s critical for Ontarians to understand the details about energy pricing and the positive role nuclear energy plays. Learn more about Ontario’s Nuclear Advantage. www.ontariosnuclearadvantage.com
