Ontario's bold new plan for a green economy

Government To Boost Renewable Energy, Economic Growth And Create A Culture of Conservation

Feb 23 2009

Ontario is proposing sweeping new legislation to attract new investment,create new green economy jobs and better protect the climate. The proposed bill, the Green Energy Act (GEA), if passed, would help thegovernment ensure Ontario's green economic future by:

- building a stronger, greener economy with new investment, creating well-paying green jobs and more economic growth for Ontario - a projected 50,000 jobs in the first three years - better protecting our environment, combating climate change and creating a healthier future for generations to come.

The proposed GEA is a bold series of coordinated actions with two equallyimportant thrusts:
- making it easier to bring renewable energy projects to life, and - fostering a culture of conservation by assisting homeowners, government, schools and industrial employers to transition to lower energy use.

The proposed GEA, and the expected regulatory changes and policies thatwould flow from it, include a range of measures.
