Idled in 2013, and formerly the largest Co2 emitting plant in Canada, Ontario is converting the Nanticoke coal plant to a 44 MW solar installation. Now we are using our heads. See, Ontario to convert largest coal plant:
Ceasing energy production in 2013 as part of Ontario’s phase-out of coal energy, the enormous plant, which could produce almost 4,000 megawatts of power at full capacity, was officially shuttered for safety reasons last year. But the strip of land on the north shore of Lake Erie will soon begin churning out power once again—only this time, the electricity will be emissions-free.
Sarnia is another southern Ontario location taking advantage of developments in solar technology. Enbridge operates a 80 MW photovoltaic plant outside the city.
