The Nuclear Technology Mayors’ Council, a group of Ontario mayors formed in recognition of the importance of the nuclear industry to their communities, provided a submission to the Minister of Energy, the Hon. Bob Chiarelli regarding the Province’s Long Term Energy Plan.
The mayors concluded that plans for nuclear refurbishments and nuclear replacement build in the Long Term Energy Plan were well founded and should continue to be implemented. They were responding to the Ministry of Energy’s consultation on what Ontario should forecast as the energy demand and what supply choices should be used to meet that demand.
Clarington Mayor Adrian Foster and Co-Chair said: “Ontario faces some very significant choices. Moving forward now with the refurbishment and the replacement build would send the right message to energy consumers, skilled trades, investors and OPG employees that Ontario is carefully planning our energy future.”
Oakville Mayor Rob Burton and Co-chair said: “The nuclear supply chain is a vital source of good jobs in our communities. Nuclear energy is the cheaper, cleaner, jobs creating choice in Ontario’s energy planning. There should be an on-going commitment to maintain nuclear in the supply mix.”
The mayors unanimously provided their strong support for the Government’s choice of putting conservation first in its energy planning.
