Duncan Hawthorne, Bruce Power’s President and CEO, shared Ontario’s Nuclear Advantage with delegates at the Canadian Nuclear Association’s annual meeting in Ottawa and at the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters’ Export Summit in Mississauga today.

We are proud to be a part of Ontario’s Nuclear Advantage and it’s important we remind people that to keep electricity prices low for families and businesses and grow our economy, we need to position our industry as the long-term solution in the province,

Hawthorne said.

Ontario’s Long-Term Energy Plan sets the policy framework for the future of nuclear, and now we need to turn this policy into action as an industry.

Yesterday, Bruce Power launched Ontario’s Nuclear Advantage, a new outreach effort to communicate the facts related to both the cost-competitive nature of nuclear and its impact on jobs and the economy. The company is an innovative, public-private partnership where private dollars are put into public-owned assets, which has totalled $7 billion since 2001.

Ontario’s nuclear industry is driven by committed people across the province every day who demonstrate a relentless commitment to innovation that is globally recognized,

Hawthorne added.
