Canada voices commitment to nuclear energy

21 Jan 2016

Ontario has revealed its commitment towards providing carbon-free, nuclear energy after confirming the extension programs of four reactors at a site in Darlington.

The Canadian province of Ontario plans to inject $9bn into the refurbishment of Ontario Power Generation’s Darlington station. At present, the plant fulfils 20% of Ontario’s electricity needs.

“Proceeding with the refurbishment at Darlington will ensure that nuclear continues to be Ontario’s single largest source of power,” said Ontario’s Minister of Energy, Bob Chiarelli.

Nuclear energy continues to be Ontario’s leading source of power, ahead of wind and solar power.
