Electricity is a form of energy that can be generated from a wide variety of resources, including nuclear, gas, oil, hydro, wind and solar. Today, most of Ontario’s electricity is generated by nuclear energy.
Electricity, like natural gas, is a significant part of everyday life. Electricity can be applied to numerous appliances, such as air conditioning, lighting and appliances, water heating and more.
Electricity prices, like natural gas, are dependent on the supply and demand curves. Prices will rise when demand is higher than supply, but lower as the supply climbs and demand decreases.
