Another loaded question that has to be asked and of course won’t get answered!
Why? Because the Wind Developers may just lose their grip on the consumers pocket books if McWynnty and Gang Green ever shut down their Green Fraud!
Hmm……when the interests of a few are placed above the interests of the many, it’s called a DICTATORSHIP!
To watch live the production of electricity go to this site!
Watch in particular the Nuclear versus the Wind amounts…….and remember Wind gets priority! This Government will “dump” heated water at Bruce when we don’t need their supply in favour of Wind which is 3 times more costly………………………………….

Bruce Power’s A and B sites are visible on the shores of Lake Huron, about 20 minutes north of Kincardine, Ont.
Yesterday, for the first time in approximately two decades, Bruce Power reached its full operating capacity when Unit 6 returned from its planned maintenance outage and all eight Bruce Power units were simultaneously sending clean, low-cost energy to the provincial electricity grid.
“Bruce Power has worked toward this day since we were formed in May 2001,” said Duncan Hawthorne, Bruce Power’s president and CEO. “Over the past decade we have invested $7 billion in private funds in the site – including first-of-a-kind refurbishment projects at Bruce A – and, with this monumental achievement, we are now positioned to provide 6,300 megawatts (MW) of low-cost electricity to the province.”
In the 1990s, all four units at the Bruce A facility were removed from service, resulting in the loss of 3,000 MW of clean electricity that generates practically zero carbon emissions. As a result, the use of fossil fuel-burning coal generation increased from 12 per cent of Ontario’s supply mix in 1995 to 29 per cent in 2000, negatively impacting the province’s air quality and health of Ontarians. In the last 10 years, with the return of Bruce Power Units 1-4 and the reliable performance of Units 5-8, coal use has dropped by 90 per cent and will be phased out entirely by the end of 2013.
