Nuclear role in Ontario power system shrinks
Toronto Star
The figures in Ontario's just-released energy plan show a dramatic drop in the province's dependence on nuclear power. But energy minister Bob Chiarelli insists that the province isn't backing away from the technology, which has traditionally supplied half the province's power, or more. "We're are 100 per cent committed to nuclear as being our baseload," Chiarelli told a meeting of the Empire Club and the Ontario Energy Association.

The Globe and Mail
On a breezy hill, a 10-minute drive from the University of Waterloo, a 30-metre-high wind turbine spins, adding an almost negligible amount of electricity to the local power grid. But what the sleek, white monolith does for the Kitchener-Waterloo region matters a lot less than what it means for the future of Canada’s most isolated citizens.

Ontario Power Authority says cancelled gas plants add $2 a year to hydro bills
The Record
The decision by Ontario's Liberals to cancel a gas plant in Oakville before the 2011 election will add little more than the price of a cup of coffee to the average household electricity bill, Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli said. "It's less than a cup of Tim Hortons coffee a year," Chiarelli told reporters after the Ontario Power Authority presented its estimate on the impact of the cancelled gas plant to the legislature's justice committee, which is probing the issue.

True smart grids may have to play the waiting game
Renew Grid
Consumer interest in smart grids has stagnated, and consequently, it could be years before true smart grids emerge, according to a recent survey conducted by Navigant Research. The Smart Grid Consumer Survey finds that consumers generally do not recognize the potential benefits of smart grid deployments and related programs and services. Hence, it could take some time before many smart grid-enabled technologies see significant adoption levels.
