Mississippi River Power Corp.'s 4.6 MW hydroelctric generating station (Brian J. Gallagher GS)
was commissioned on April 9, 2010.
A recent report by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) provides much needed context for the emotional debate about why our electricity prices are spiraling upwards. According to the OEB, since 2006, 45% of the increase in our electricity generation costs has been due to subsidies for the nuclear industry, while only 6% of the increase is due to subsidies for green energy.
