Ontario is North America's leader in conservation and renewable energy. Across the province, windmills, biogas and biomass facilities, small hydro and solar panels are being installed in farmers' fields, First Nations' lands, and on the roofs of homes, schools, churches and factories. Businesses and individual Ontarians are conserving energy, increasing our competitiveness, creating jobs and reducing dependence on fossil fuels.

This success is due to the Green Energy Act and its feed-in tariff programs, which have motivated thousands of people across Ontario to become conservers and power producers. It has attracted billions of dollars of green investment in small and large-scale projects. Grassroots support and participation are vital to keep green power building in the province. Sustainable energy is no longer just about the environment or even our health. It is about jobs, investment and the future of Ontario.
