Here's Sparklite on the current electrical generating crisis in Ontario:
Ontario is shutting down its coal generators while at the same time continuing to have trouble at its older nuclear stations, and it would seem that no plans proposed by the new pseudo-private Ontario Power Generation Corporation have been approved or even examined by the government. Be it natural gas or nuclear we need new plants! The Nuclear plant at Bowmanville is an example of what we should be building. While it has been in operation for years it is our newest nuclear plant and it operates reliably and safely and outputs vast amounts of electricity.Sparklite is referring to the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station in Bowmanville, Ontario, the home of four CANDU reactors with a combined capacity of 3,524 megawatts. And when it comes to natural gas, its use for heating and industrial purposes, as well as electrical generation, is placing unsustainable pricing pressure on gas markets.
