Ontario Power Generation

Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is a public company wholly owned by Government of Ontario. OPG is responsible for approximately 60% of the electricity generation in the Province of Ontario, Canada. Sources of electricity include nuclear, hydroelectric, wind, solar and fossil fuel. Although Ontario has an open electricity market, the provincial government, as OPG's sole shareholder, regulated the price the company receives for its electricity to be less than the market average, in an attempt to stabilize prices. As of 1 April 2008, the company's rates have been regulated by the Ontario Energy Board.

Famous quotes containing the words generation and/or power:

    Never before has a generation of parents faced such awesome competition with the mass media for their children’s attention. While parents tout the virtues of premarital virginity, drug-free living, nonviolent resolution of social conflict, or character over physical appearance, their values are daily challenged by television soaps, rock music lyrics, tabloid headlines, and movie scenes extolling the importance of physical appearance and conformity.
    Marianne E. Neifert (20th century)

    Immediately aware that power had gone forth from him, Jesus turned about in the crowd and said, “Who touched my clothes?”
    Bible: New Testament, Mark 5:30.
