WIND POWER KILLS JOBS AND INCREASES ELECTRICITY COSTS

     Ontario's pursuit of wind power has driven up electricity prices, is killing jobs and might even lead to more smog, a new Fraser Institute report say's.

Ross McKitrick, author of Environmental and Economic Consequences of Ontario's Green Energy Act (GEA), say's the Ontario Governments electricity plan is now 10 times more costly than installing pollution-control equipment on existing coal plants - an option he argues would have produced similar improvements in air quality.

His analysis of the GEA concludes the province is well on its way to having some of the highest eclectricity prices in North America.

"Already, the GEA has caused major price increases for large energy consumers and we're anticipating additional hikes of 40 to 50% over the next few years," McKitrick said in a statement.
