Ontario’s Power Producers Comment on Plan to Lower Electricity Prices
TORONTO, March 2, 2017:
Ontario's power producers commented on the announcement today by Premier Kathleen Wynne that the government would be acting shortly to lower electricity bills for residential consumers.
“We are pleased that today’s announcement preserves the integrity of Ontario’s electricity market and acknowledges that the investments Ontario has made in generation can continue to provide good value to the electricity system well into the future”, said APPrO president & CEO David Butters.
APPrO members will continue to work with the Government and the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) as well as other agencies to ensure that Ontario’s power supply needs are met at the best cost, today and in the future.
APPrO is a non-profit organization representing more than 20 independent power producers in Ontario, and over 100 suppliers of services, equipment and consulting services. APPrO members produce power from co-generation, hydro, gas, nuclear, wind energy, waste wood, solar and other sources. APPrO’s members currently produce about 50% of the electricity made in Ontario.
