Ontario to Phase Out Coal by 2014, Build More Nuclear

From yesterday's National Post

Ontario's power system will rely on more wind, solar and other renewable energy sources, build more nuclear power plants and ask consumers to save more electricity to meet the province's energy needs for the next two decades under a sweeping $60-billion plan unveiled yesterday by the Ontario Power Authority.

The plan would phase out Ontario's greenhouse-gas-emitting coal-fired power plants by 2014.

"It's a directional plan: it's a road map," Amir Shalaby, the power authority's vice-president of planning, said.
Just more good news from North America's best kept secret in emissions reduction.
