Building a Clean Energy Future in Ontario

Ontario's Long Term Energy PlanOntario's updated Long-Term Energy Plan, Achieving Balance, encourages conservation and lays out a plan for clean, reliable and affordable energy for Ontarians, where and when they need it.

The 2013 Long-Term Energy Plan (LTEP) balances five principles that will guide future decisions: cost-effectiveness, reliability, clean energy, community engagement, and an emphasis on conservation and demand management before building new generation.

Rather than relying exclusively on large, centralized power plants transmitting power over long distances, Ontario's Green Energy and Economy Act and Long-Term Energy Plan call for the development of a diversified, low-carbon energy supply mix that:

  • Increases the use of renewable sources of energy including solar, wind, hydro and bioenergy
  • Increases the use of localized generation from smaller, cleaner sources of electricity
  • Provides new opportunities for smaller power producers to become generators: individuals, small co-operatives, partnerships and aboriginal communities
