Ontario is inviting public and stakeholder feedback in its review of the Long-Term Energy Plan, according to a release from the Ontario Ministry of Energy (MOE).

To facilitate dialogue, the MOE says it will hold numerous information sessions across the province, including St. Catharines, London, Windsor, Toronto, Thunder Bay, Sudbury, Barrie and Ottawa. Not only is the MOE seeking feedback related to energy and conservation issues, but it also wants input for solutions and implementation. Alternatively, the MOE says Ontarians can also participate by completing an online questionnaire.

Over the past 10 years, Ontario has brought more than 3.3 GW of renewable energy online. Since 2003, approximately 12 GW of new and refurbished generation has been added to Ontario’s energy supply.

However, transmission capacity and renewable energy, specifically wind, have become hot-button political topics in the province. As a result, utility-scale wind projects have largely been de-emphasized for the near future.

The updated Long-Term Energy Plan will be released this fall, notes the MOE.
