A great new resource from the Canadian Nuclear Society !

The statistics are near-real-time -- updated every hour, at 33 min. past the hour, using IESO source data.

The image below is just a quick overview -- much more detailed info is posted on another CNS page, in Flash player format:

The links have changed, and an official announcement was made today as follows:

Quote:
The CNS Education and Communication Committee announces a new resource on the CNS website for anyone wondering how much electricity in Ontario comes from nuclear, how much from wind, etc., which plants are operating at what capacity factor, how this has changed over the last 48 hours, and how many tonnes of CO2 or homes equivalent are supplied by each fuel type.

Go to http://www.cns-snc.ca/OntarioElectricity to see this information, which also includes a link to the pie-chart (upper left corner of page) that can be inserted in other websites as content (see front page of http://www.nuclearfaq.ca for example).

This information is based on public data available on the IESO website (http://www.ieso.ca) and updated hourly.

Please spread the word. Many Canadians, and Ontarians in particular, are not aware of the significant contribution that nuclear energy makes to their lives, and how this compares to other fuel types.

If anyone has a question or suggestion regarding this initiative, please send to Jeremy Whitlock at whitlockj@aecl.ca.

Many thanks to CNS webmaster Elmir Lekovic for creating the page, and suffering the many review iterations.

Regards,

Jeremy Whitlock

co-chair, CNS Education & Communication Committee

You in Ontario are lucky. 80% of your electricity is already clean.
