– By 2030, almost 70% of required electricity generation will need to come from new or refurbished
– Despite conservation efforts, demand for electricity is expected to increase by 15% from 2010‐2030
To prepare for these changes, the province has developed a Long‐Term Energy Plan (LTEP) for the period of 2010 ‐ 2030. By 2030, the LTEP calls for the vast majority of electricity generation in Ontario to come from nuclear power (46%), hydro‐electricity (20%), wind (10%), and natural gas (7%), and for conservation measures to reduce demand by 14%. The solar photovoltaic (PV) industry is set to add to that mix an expected 1.5% of total generation by 2030.
