My Toronto Includes Windmills!

Toronto has an opportunity to take a giant step forward in creating clean, green, sustainable power… but this opportunity has been blocked before it even gets started.

On Friday, February 11th, the Province of Ontario announced it will not allow any new offshore wind developments in Ontario. This effectively kills any future plans by Toronto Hydro to install wind turbines in Lake Ontario and provide Torontonians with clean, green power. It also creates a major gap in Toronto Hydro's long term renewable power plan that won't easily be filled by other renewable technologies.
