  • OSEA: OSEA submission to Commission on the Reform of Ontario's Public Service
    wind farm and finally execution of the Distribution Connection Agreement the OEB still undertook a 60 day public review process to determine the merits of M Chigeeng having a generator license These examples demonstrate that pubic sector agencies are directly causing increased costs for other public agencies that are usually powerless to do much about it without incurring additional costs Agencies such as the Ontario Energy Board Ontario Power Authority and Hydro One have demonstrated a cavalier approach to wasting other organization s money impacting the public pocket as well as commercial and community developers In addition to these project specific strains the current Feed in tariff Program review with the unexpected freeze of the program is resulting in the closure of small medium and large commercial companies and consequently layoffs as opposed to job creation in this new green economy The failure to continue processing applications during the review to consider an interim release or even the grandfathering of contracts during the ever lengthening review has given unprecedented rise to economic risk for all sector participants See the attached document below providing further material for consideration by OSEA Board Member Marion Fraser titled Getting it Right Not Quite Ontario s Green Energy Act that examines the gap between policy and implementation Fiscal risk associated with the proposed Long term Energy Plan s 50 nuclear set aside The proposed long term energy plan that directs the Ontario Power Authority to draft an Integrated Power Systems Plan represents a serious concern as it creates a set aside for nuclear power while putting a cap on less expensive conservation combined heat and power CHP and renewable energy In late 2011 the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association OSEA released a report calling for the end of subsidies to nuclear projects and the adoption of a degression model to gradually phase out rate based premiums for new renewable energy projects during the next decade Currently new green power purchases for hundreds of projects under the Feed in tariff FIT Programs will collectively cost Ontarian s 220 million per year but pending repairs at the Darlington nuclear plant will cost 10 Billion Building new reactors at Darlington will add 26 Billion or more in public debt This subsidized price conceals further costs footed by the tax payers of Ontario such as the yet to be solved disposal solution for the radioactive waste and the Province imposed cap on public liability required to make the plants insurable Ontario s green power sector has attracted more than 7 Billion in investment The projects that are being constructed will only be borne by the ratepayers once they produce power not before and not if they have cost overruns Ontario s green power sector is poised to provide the clean energy and manufacturing jobs our economy needs But the sector cannot compete against the Billions in hidden subsidies that nuclear projects receive If past history repeats the planned new reactors at Darlington could cost Ontarians 36 Billion But no power
