Ontario’s clean electricity system is helping to attract investment and support Ontario’s growth now and in the years ahead. Along with this expected growth, many sectors are investing in electrifying parts of the economy that currently rely on carbon-emitting sources, such as transportation and heavy industry.

Bruce Power is a crucial part of Ontario’s clean energy grid, past, present and future. By refurbishing our nuclear fleet, Bruce Power is ensuring people and businesses in Ontario continue to have access to reliable, clean, zero-carbon electricity to meet growing demand while providing thousands of high-skilled jobs and producing cancer-fighting medical isotopes in support of global health.
