Securing Ontario's Power Supply: Market Forces Are Superior to Government Fiat

The Ontario government, under Premier Dalton McGuinty, is preparing to adopt a new energy plan that prescribes both the amount of electricity-generating capacity and the specific types of capacity (such as wind power, hydropower, and solar power) for 20 years into the future. This publication examines the “Integrated Power System Plan” and its implications for energy consumers and the Ontario economy. Although officials express a desire to restrain electricity costs, this central-planning approach actually invites rate escalation.
