Ontario - First Place in North America to End Coal-Fired Power!!!

Ontario’s elimination of coal-fired electricity stands as the single largest greenhouse gas reduction initiative in North America and was primarily responsible for Ontario achieving its 2014 emissions reduction target of 6% below 1990 levels. In 2003, coal represented approximately 25%, or 7,560 MW, of Ontario's supply mix. In 2014, coal represented 0%, all while grid reliability and domestic supply improved. According to an independent study, Ontario’s coal-fired power plants cost the people of Ontario an estimated $4.4 billion per year in health, environmental, and financial damages. The elimination of coal-fired electricity was a shared effort between the Ontario Ministry of Energy and two of its agencies: - Ontario Power Generation (OPG), the largest generator of electricity in the province, primarily through hydroelectric and nuclear sites. - The Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), whose duties include both procuring electricity supply and planning the electricity system over the long-term. Learn how Ontario became the first North American government to eliminate coal-fired electricity generation, paving the way for a cleaner, greener electricity system.
