This page contains resources about provinces that have set or are setting targets for reducing the carbon emissions generated by the generation of electricity.
Ontario- 50% nuclear. Phased out coal by 2014 (initially was 2007). Ontario’s target for energy from wind, solar and bio-energy is 10,700 MW (13%) by 2018 (excluding hydroelectric). Planning for 9,000 MW from hydro by 2018
Quebec- already nearly 100% (98% hydro, 2% nuclear, <1% conventional thermal)
Manitoba- 30% from renewablesby 2030
Nova Scotia - COMFIT program increase electricity supply generated by renewablesto 25 % by 2015 and 40 % by 2020. Limits participants to community-owned projects
Alberta- does not appear to have any targets
British Columbia- http://www.energyplan.gov.bc.ca/bcep/default.aspx?hash=3
Newfoundland & Labrador- does not appear to have any targets
New Brunswick - does not appear to have any targets
Prince Edward Island - Renewable Energy Act calling for 15% by 2010 and 100% by 2015. (Initially, the policy included a section that committed the province to a target of 100 percent of electricity from renewable sources by 2015, but in recognition of the technological challenge stemming from intermittency of wind power, this section was withdrawn.)
Reportedly, PEI has also set a target of 30% power from renewablesby 2016.
