The electricity system of Ontario is highly complicated and several contracts along with costs are hidden. The speculation of nuclear energy costs is also high in Ontario. If steps are taken to improve the aging electricity system infrastructure of Ontario then it leads towards inevitable price change for the consumers of electricity. Due to investments being made across the nation, the prices for the customers are consistently rising (reaching to 40 percent). According to the recent Ontario Green Energy Act, it has been depicted that that the tariff program of FIT in the act wherein a price for energy feeding is paid to the producers of renewable energy over the grids of electricity poses high threats (Stokes 490-500). These threats result in increasing the prices for the customers making them demand the electricity authorities to use a lesser expensive source of electricity (Stokes 490-500). This Green Economy Act, 2009, was formulated with the aim to address Ontario’s economic growth promotion and to address the issues of environment.
It is not likely that the GEA act of Ontario will develop any improvement in environment and those improvements which have taken place are those which would have happened under the trends in technology and policy formulated back in the year 1970. Therefore, it is quiet plausible that by adding additional power of wind to the electricity grids will lead towards ending up the complete increase in air emissions from the electricity generation system.
If further electricity expansion of the grid takes place then it leads towards capacity of base-load to reduce causing higher needs in nuclear generation. Therefore, further expansion of electricity system under the GEA policy will lead towards enhanced emissions in air and hence a barrier towards de-carbonization.
