Ontario completely phased out coal generation in 2014, and replaced it with increased wind, solar and natural gas generation. The province now generates 58% of its electricity from 18 of Canada’s 19 CANDU nuclear reactors. In 2016, hydro was Ontario’s second largest source of electricity. Non-hydro renewables experienced strong growth under the feed-in-tariff program, with solar capacity increasing by ~30% annually since 2005.
