  • OSEA: OSEA welcomes FIT Review decision
    and almost all are cheaper than rebuilding Darlington nuclear facilities i A portfolio of sustainable energy options including conservation FIT procured renewables combined heat and power CHP and potentially water power imports from Quebec represents a real bargain both environmentally and economically The two year review and revitalization of the FIT program has always been in the cards It shouldn t be delayed it is time for Ontarians to move forward and seize the opportunity Mr Stevens can address questions such as How can renewables contribute to making our electricity grid more distributed scalable agile reliable and smart How can we get the biggest bang for our electricity buck as we invest in the future of Ontario How can we maximize local control and benefits and address legitimate local concerns about development in their back yards How can OSEA s Community Power tools and resources help accelerate community and First Nations participation under the FIT How can a portfolio of sustainable energy mitigate high costs associated with other alternatives like nuclear Are there really new manufacturing and development jobs in solar wind water power and bio energy How can we mitigate the cost of electricity bills for homeowners businesses and industry with the new generation of nuclear plants costing much more than the supply we are replacing Background How and Why Renewable Energy is critical to affordable energy Contrary to rhetoric espoused by some a portfolio of sustainable energy conservation CHP water power imports and FIT procured renewables is the cheapest option as we rebuild and reinvest in our long neglected electricity grid and replace our retiring coal and nuclear For electricity buying Ontarians more important than the FIT review is challenging the assumption that an expensive rebuild of our nuclear plants is necessary In just over two years Ontario

  • OSEA: Ontario must phase out all power subsidies, says OSEA
    provide the clean energy and manufacturing jobs our economy needs said Kristopher Stevens OSEA s Executive Director An apples to apples comparison is not only fair it is the smart thing to do Renewables can t compete fairly against the billions in hidden subsidies that nuclear projects enjoy No Ontarian should have to choose between nuclear plants with serious safety risks or green power which poses few if any safety risks OSEA s report notes that existing and proposed CANDU reactors have a serious safety design flaw that prohibits any from being licensed to operate in the United States OSEA has asked the Minister to reject any new nuclear plant builds that involve subsidies or the positive void reactivity flaw in safety design The OSEA report documents that no Ontario CANDU reactor was built on time or on budget with average construction cost 150 higher than originally projected The last nuclear plant built Darlington was 11 billion over budget and took 15 years to complete If past history repeats the planned new reactors at Darlington could cost Ontarians 36 billion But no power would be delivered until 2020 at the earliest It is common sense that all new sources of electricity generation will be more expensive than those built four decades ago said Stevens But the cost curves for solar and wind projects are descending sharply while nuclear costs are increasing This should be the real focus of all political parties and the public when discussing energy costs We trust this report will motivate Ontarians to learn more about the options available and the big choices we have to make said Stevens Together we can plot a course where every Ontarian has the opportunity to be a green energy generator and lower their bills through conservation For a PDF version
