Between 2005 and 2018, Ontario’s electricity system carbon emissions were reduced by 90 per cent. Today, Ontario’s electricity system is 94 per cent emissions free and has one of the lowest carbon intensity rates in the world.
Ontario also leads almost every state in the U.S. Even high renewables states like California have much higher electricity CO2 intensity than Ontario.
In fact, Ontario has one of the cleanest electricity grids in the world, accounting for just 3% of our province's total GHG emissions.
Making significant progress towards reducing Ontario’s overall carbon emissions means reducing emissions across ALL economic sectors, including the industrial, transportation and building sectors, which together, accounted for 87 per cent of our province’s total GHG emissions in 2018. See how access to one of the cleanest electricity grids in the world will help drive economy-wide decarbonization and maximize the impact of climate-conscious choices Ontarians make every day.
Choosing electric vehicles is a critical way consumers can support a cleaner climate. The energy mix used to power those vehicles matters.View this
