Ontario could become a North American environmental leader, but municipalities can’t stand in the way of wind power.
That was the message Tuesday (June 2) from Ontario Energy and Infrastructure Minister George Smitherman as he toured a hydroelectric plant here.
Smitherman, also Ontario’s deputy premier, praised Innergex Renewable Energy Inc. for its operation of the eight-megawatt plant.
“We are very, very proud that a lot of the investment that is occurring is taking place in the private sector,” Smitherman said. “We have many more opportunities here to create energy from what Mother Nature gives us from the wind and the sun and the water.”
