Ontario Moves Forward with Nuclear

Ontario Power Generation has started the formal process of gaining federal approval for the expansion of the Darlington Nuclear Plant in Durham, 50 kilometers east of Toronto. The move is in addition to the environmental assessment under way for the refurbishment of four mothballed nuclear units at Pickering.

Ontario's new energy plan calls for $40 billion in new nuclear capacity, and the continuation of nuclear's 50% share of the province's supply mix.
