Please see our new page/tab this morning on the regional power plans prepared by the Ontario Power Authority, specifically the plan for Greater Ottawa.
Already, the OPA is talking about a “sparse” power supply outside the Greenbelt, and the need for more power in Ottawa.
This bears watching.
An OPA staffer told someone in our community at one of their “conversation” events this past summer, when she expressed concern about an expensive wind power project that provide power out of phase with demand, “I understand your concerns, but WE have to think of the ‘big picture’.”
This is the OPA’s “big picture” for Ottawa.
