  • OSEA: Wind Power Among the Lowest for Emissions
    fair market rules with its power market neighbours the province must maintain a contingency of spinning gas and hydro plants equal to the largest generating resource in the province So where are the 900 MW wind turbines As only nuclear and hydroelectric generation plants meet this large generation criteria not distributed wind or solar the much smaller Cedar Point Wind Farm would not contribute to emissions in this oft repeated scenario Excess power that is dumped exported is far more likely to be generated by nuclear plants that make up 37 per cent of Ontario s electricity supply rather than wind power s nine per cent of supply source http www ieso ca Pages Power Data supply aspx The location and construction of peaking units has nothing to do with wind generation but everything to do with the inflexibility of Ontario s nuclear fleet Gas has essentially replaced coal as nuclear s partner on the grid The OSPE s Ontario s Electricity Dilemma report only represents the opinion of certain OSPE members The OSPE does not speak for all professional engineers in the province It is also incorrect to say that the report is jointly published by the PEO who are the provincial regulator of engineering standards The PEO is prohibited by law from advocating for or against particular technologies The OSPE report is based on data from 2011 which is before large scale installation of wind power was prevalent in Ontario It is also based on a model extrapolating one weekend s extreme imbalance of supply and demand to shape the province s supply mix for decades to come The report s research assumptions and findings are not considered credible by those involved in planning modern electrical systems As generator and consumer Ontario is part of the North American electricity market producing electricity from and trading with regional partners David Butters CEO The Association of Power Producers of Ontario APPrO explained why we export and import electricity Because it helps the province s electricity system and market to be more reliable cost effective and competitive Every hour of every day Ontario imports and exports energy with neighbouring jurisdictions based on changing market and system conditions The virtue of interconnectedness is that we can rely on our neighbours for energy when we need to and they can call on us And over the years we have done both many times Lifetime wind energy costs are relatively small and will remain so for three reasons Thanks to the current RFP process costs of wind generated electricity are competitive and continue to decrease as turbine technology improves and storage options emerge the latest Large Renewables Procurement process is expected to come in at 0 07 0 09 kWh Fuel costs will always be zero Wind generation s overall contribution to current electricity supply is small about four per cent of total generation in 2014 and will only increase as it outbids other sources of generation especially nuclear refurbishment While wind has intermittency
