Ontario is on track to building a clean, reliable electricity system. Ontario’s elimination of coal-fired electricity generation is the single largest greenhouse gas reduction measure being undertaken in North America. This is helping to improve the health of Ontarians and fighting climate change.
Ontario will shut the last of its coal plants in southern Ontario by the end of 2013, a year ahead of schedule.
A coal-free energy mix will reduce harmful emissions, leading to cleaner air & a healthier environment for Ontarians http://t.co/Jl2yfUFKnV
