I would like to thank Stephen Carr for his letter, published in the October 2, 2020 edition of your paper, and for his continued interest in our proposed pumped hydro storage project at Meaford. He raises a number of considerations that I would like to address and clarify.
1. Electricity Exports to the United States and CO2 Emission Reductions:
Stephen states that Ontario’s surplus electricity is exported to neighbouring utilities that use a component of coal in their electricity generation processes. This is not entirely correct. New York closed its last coal plant this year and Michigan has committed to a phaseout of all its coal fleet by 2040.
