Powering Ontario's Future
Powering Ontario’s Future
New public information initiative from APPrO
Electricity is the lifeblood of Ontario’s economy. It’s a critical force in nearly everything we do and is likely to become even more essential for meeting society’s needs in the future. These are two of the central concepts in a new document released by APPrO called “Powering Ontario’s Future.' Written in friendly, accessible language, the 12-page brochure is full of facts, figures and photos illustrating some of the major features and current issues in Ontario’s power system. It is designed to help inform the public and decision makers about some of the critical decisions that are facing the provincial power system in the near future.
Electricity in Ontario represents billion of dollars of investment and many thousand of jobs. Since 2003, the Association of Power Producers of Ontario or APPrO – comprised of companies who generate over 95% of our electricity – has worked hard to ensure that provincial electricity policy is practical, affordable, and sustainable.
Supply conditions in Ontario have improved as newly procured long-term generation and demand management contracts are being brought into service. This has contributed to greater stability in prices as both annual energy use and peak demand steadily grow.
Ontario’s electricity system has come a long way in just a few short years but while Ontario is moving in the right direction, much more remains to be done.
If Ontario’s energy policy and regulatory processes remain clear, stable, efficient and effective, these and many other attractive features will ensure we continue to be a destination of choice for energy investment. This in turn will lead to an increasingly better electricity system in Ontario.
APPrO is dedicated to working together with stakeholders to build an economically and environmentally sustainable power supply system for Ontario.
