Staggering Cost of Ontario’s Disastrous Wind Power Experiment

Like South Australia, Ontario is another place where ideologues destroyed a perfectly reliable and thoroughly affordable electricity supply.

Power Shock: Outrageous Cost of Subsidies Under Ontario’s ‘Green’ Energy Act Escalates

Like South Australia and Germany, Ontario launched headlong into wind power, as if actions no longer had consequences. In all cases, the results have been a disaster. The economic destruction that comes with rocketing power prices, has hollowed out Ontario’s manufacturing base. South Australia’s is now non-existent.
