USE LESS ELECTRICITY

"The Green Energy Act is certainly a serious attempt to strengthen green energy in the province, but the government seems to be going on two tracks," said Mark Lutes, climate change and energy policy analyst at the David Suzuki Foundation. "On the one hand, they're putting some serious effort into [renewable energy] … but on the other hand, they may also be going full steam ahead on new nuclear acquisitions … If they invest significant resources now in the tens of millions of dollars they're thinking of investing in nuclear, it would undermine the intentions of the Green Energy Act."

Lutes is not the only one who has expressed concern at the McGuinty government's seemingly contradictory message surrounding their commitment to green energy. Jack Gibbons, the chair of the Ontario Clean Air Alliance voiced an opinion similar to that of Lutes and the David Suzuki Foundation.

"Yes, we think the current proposed act is good, it's an important step forward, but there's much more that needs to be done. In particular, the government is planning to sign a contract … for the construction of two new nuclear reactors … and that would be a huge mistake. That would lock us into nuclear power for another 60 years," he said.
ELECTRIC SPACE AND WATER HEATERS IN HOMES ARE ENERGY HOGS AND MUST BE CONTROLLED OR ELIMINATED IN ORDER TO PRESERVE ONTARIO CLEAN AIR AND WATER. . .WHENEVER HOT WATER IS USED ONTARIO USES DIRTY COAL OR DIRTY NUCLEAR POWER TO SUPPLY THAT USE. . . . . .USING LESS ELECTRICITY IS THE MOST COST EFFECTIVE WAY TO REDUCE CO2 EMISSIONS FROM ENERGY SUPPLY SYSTEMS.
