The results of a new poll from Innovative Research Group indicates that rising electricity rates in Ontario has become a big problem for the Kathleen Wynne Liberals.

Utilities and renewable technology providers are lauding Ontario’s decision to bolster the province’s net metering rules by making energy storage a key component. They say the proposed rule changes will facilitate the adoption of more solar in the province, provide businesses with the opportunity to reduce electricity costs and offer grid side benefits.

Large scale renewable energy in Ontario took a big hit this week when the province announced the suspension of its Large Renewable Procurement (LRP) Program. But the case for smaller systems particularly when they are combined with energy storage still makes a lot of sense.

The development of offshore wind energy Newfoundland and Labrador is taking additional steps forward. Beothuk Energy has created a partnership with Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) to develop, own and operate wind farms in Atlantic Canada.

Renewable energy combined with energy storage is a tipping point, according to Canadian Energy chief executive Craig Ballard. In an interview with Canadian Green Tech earlier this September, he explained that in addition to being technical viable, it presents positive economic value for remote communities looking to kick the diesel habit.
