The Do More For Less Model

Low cost
Many renewable power options, such as wind and small-scale hydro, can already produce power more cheaply than nuclear units, and that's without including the long-term costs of dealing with radioactive waste.  Even emerging technologies like solar power offer big advantages by producing the most power when electricity demand is high (hot summer days) and allowing power to be produced where it is being used, thereby avoiding transmission line losses (and mega-million dollar construction costs).   

More conventional power sources, like natural gas, can be used in very efficient combined heat and power plants that provide two services – heat and power – instead of just one using the same fuel.

Increasing energy efficiency is costing Ontario 76-94% less than new nuclear.

2.3-4.6 cents per kWh for energy efficiency vs. 19-37 cents per kWh to re-build Darlington.
