The Ontario Government announced today the details of its ongoing plan to phase out coal-fired generation projects in Ontario and produce over 7,500 megawatts of cleaner power. The plan will see three out of the four remaining coal-fired generating stations close by the end of 2007, with the fourth generating station, Nanticoke GS, closing in early 2009. The Government's commitment to this plan was fuelled in part by a report released in April, 2005 which indicated the massive health and environmental costs of coal-fired energy production.
