Ontario's clean energy economy has created 20,000 jobs to date, while supplying clean, renewable energy to power our homes and businesses.
So far, more than 2,000 mid-size and large-scale Feed-in Tariff projects have been announced, representing enough electricity each year to power about 900,000 homes. This is part of Ontario's plan to replace dirty, coal-fired plants with cleaner sources of renewable energy like water, wind, solar and bio-energy. It's also part of the province's plan to build a clean, modern and reliable electricity system for tomorrow.
Ontario's Green Energy Act is on track to create 50,000 clean energy jobs by 2012.
- Ontario forecasts that by 2018, 10,700 megawatts of renewable power from wind, solar and bio-energy will have been brought online - enough electricity each year to power more than 2 million homes.
- Coal usage for the first six months of 2011 was 94 per cent lower than coal usage for the same period in 2003

Ontario’s Green Energy Act is “good for consumers, good for business and good for workers,” says the ex-chief of staff for former president Bill Clinton.
But John Podesta warned a Toronto audience that it will have to be defended from attacks from “entrenched special interests that spread misinformation and fear.”
Nuclear power, which supplies about half of Ontario’s electricity, is “a really expensive option”. That means investing in energy efficiency and clean energy are the best choices, he said.
China and Europe are racing to be leaders in this economy. Ontario’s Green Energy Act is positioning Ontario to take advantage, too, he said.

Located behind the Town of Innisfil's old administration building on Innisfil Beach Road a 10-kilowatt solar power project is scheduled to start construction during the week of July 18. The solar power project is expected to generate an estimated $9,000 in profits for the town every year, which will be added to general revenue and help subsidize local taxes.
“This forward-thinking solar power project, in partnership with Innisfil Hydro, is a great step towards long-term energy sustainability for the town,” said mayor Barb Baguley. “This project shows that the town is clearly actively going ‘beyond the hour’, which was Earth Hour’s challenge for all 2011 participants.”
“We’re excited to be partnering with the town on this initiative," said Innisfil Hydro president George Shaparew. "There are 27 solar projects that have already been connected to Innisfil Hydro’s power grid, and applications for another 70 are in the works.”

Siliken S.A. a leading Spanish solar module manufacturing company, announced plans to establish a $5 to $7 billion solar facility in Windsor, Ontario. This domestic compliant manufacturing plant will be operative by mid-2011 and generate enough clean energy (50 Megawatts) to power the equivalent of 19,000 households.
Expected to be among the largest in North America, this venture will create 175 direct jobs, positively impacting Ontario's green career market. Commenting on the significance of this investment, Brad Duguid, Ontario's Minister of Energy said, "Attracting investment like Siliken's manufacturing plant is precisely what McGuinty government set out to do through the Green Energy Act and Feed-in-Tariff program." He adds, "Working together with companies like Siliken, we are promoting renewable energy and made-in-Ontario technology, creating new jobs for Ontarians, and making our air cleaner for our kids and grandkids."
Substantial investments in solar panel installations have made Ontario a hub for clean energy and fertile ground for furthering green careers. According to Ron Gaudet, CEO of the Windsor Essex Economic Development Corporation (WEEDC), "Siliken's position as a global leader in solar technology is a recognition of our region's goal of becoming the site of choice for renewable energy investments in North America." Guadet continued, "We are positioned to become the hub for renewable energy technology and manufacturing in North America."
Ontario is clearly in the midst of a solar revolution, but according to a report by Canadian Solar Industries Association (CanSIA), the entire country is experiencing "solar" labor shortages - a problem that is only expected to worsen in the coming year. To counteract the trend, CanSIA, among other measures, suggested a nationwide certification program for PV and solar thermal installers. Currently Canada has only one ISPQ-accredited PV training school - Ontario Solar Academy, but for the province and country to meet their long-term sustainability goals, they both must redouble their efforts to train a green workforce capable of leading North America into a clean energy future.

The Canadian province of Ontario says its program of providing incentives for green energy production has brought in commitments for C$20 billion ($21 billion) in private-sector investment since the program was put in place in 2009.
The green energy program had created 13,000 jobs by the end of last year and is "very much on target" to reach the 50,000 mark by the end of 2012, Ontario energy minister Brad Duguid said.
"You've got to remember that the bulk of the projects are still about to go under construction in the next year, so the biggest part of that job creation is yet to come," he said.
The program has so far brought online 2,000 megawatts of renewable energy, equal to about 5 percent of the province's installed electricity generation. That includes 200 MW of solar capacity, which produces enough electricity to power about 30,000 homes a year.

Just in time to take advantage of the summer sun, the solar panels installed on the roof of Guelph Hydro’s facility at 395 Southgate Drive are up and running, generating power for Ontarians under the Ontario Power Authority’s Feed-In Tariff program.
Guelph Hydro Inc. was awarded a 20-year Feed-in Tariff contract by the Ontario Power Authority under Ontario’s Green Energy and Economy Act. The system is expected to generate approximately 115,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per year – enough clean energy to power approximately 11 homes.
In mid-June, the Ontario Power Authority reported it had executed contracts for more than 1,000 FIT projects and 5,000 small-scale microFIT projects.
Solar energy is emission-free, silent and delivers its maximum output during peak load hours, making it an ideal addition to Ontario’s portfolio of energy sources. Solar energy is free, environmentally friendly and a readily available resource.

Ontario hydro rates are only minimally affected by heavy Liberal subsidies to wind and solar projects, according to a new report that casts doubt on the Conservative party’s plans for renewable energy.
Tim Weis, co-author of the Pembina report, and other energy experts say Ontario hydro bills are rising because the province is making substantial investments in its aging energy infrastructure, which went for more than a decade without upgrades. Many generating facilities and transmission lines in Ontario are now reaching the end of their lifespan.
The study found that if a new government replaced green energy contracts (which Conservatives claim pay “up to 15 times the usual cost of hydro”) with new gas-fired generation, the price of electricity would change only slightly – between 1-2 per cent – over the next decade. In the long run, depending on changes to the price of natural gas, heavily-subsidized wind and solar power might be cheaper, according to the report.
