Report calls for more investment in renewable energy

Ontario can go a lot further with its renewable energy policy than it has in recent
legislation says the David Suzuki Foundation. The Foundation recently released a
report that coincided with the second reading of Ontario's new electricity
legislation. The new legislation commits to 2,700 megawatts of renewable energy
by 2010. The Foundation's report, "Smart Generation: Powering Ontario with
Renewable Energy," states that the opportunity to invest in renewable energy is much greater.
For example, the province could install 8,000 megawatts of wind power by 2012.
The report states this will create 5,000 new jobs in wind power and $14 billion in economic benefits. Renewable energies include wind, biomass, solar, hydro and geothermal.
