Omitted Costs, Inflated Benefits: Renewable Energy Policy in Ontario
Gallant, Parker; Fox, Glenn
Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, v31 n5 p369-376 Oct 2011
The government of Ontario has adopted wind energy development as an alternative energy source. It enacted the Green Energy and Economy Act, May 2009, with the intention to fast track the approval process regarding industrial wind turbines. The Act legislated a centralized decision making process while removing local jurisdictional authority. Throughout this process, the government reassured the public of inexpensive and reliable electricity. This article explores the costs and benefits related to the renewable energy policy established in Ontario, Canada. (Contains 2 figures, 1 table, and 11 notes.)
