Energy conservation is common sense for Ontario. This report shows that cutting electricity and natural gas use by 25 per cent by 2025 would create 25,000 new jobs, reduce federal and provincial deficits, boost GDP by $3.7 billion and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by nine per cent. This may sound ambitions, but it’s readily achievable. Ontario’s energy use is 50 per cent greater than New York State and double that of the U.K. With the province reviewing their Long-Term Energy Plan, now is the time to get serious about conservation.
