A new study suggests that Ontario residents are consuming between 7.2 and 9.8 megawatt hours of electricity each year, with the rest being produced by natural gas and wind.
That compares with a federal average of 4.9 megawatthours.
The study by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) was conducted by EnergySource, a consulting firm that works with energy companies.
The OEB said the average electricity usage for the province was 4.7 megawatts.
That number has been steadily declining over the past several years.
The province now consumes less than half of the 1.1 gigawatt hour per year it once consumed.
The OEB study found that in 2017 Ontario was producing between 7,664 megawatters of electricity from natural gas (gas-fired power plants) and wind power.
That was down from a peak of 10,948 megawats in 2014.
The province now produces almost the same amount of natural gas-fired electricity as in 2016.
But the OEB says that in 2020, Ontario will produce almost twice as much natural gas as in 2021.
Natural gas generation is growing rapidly.
In 2016, natural gas was about 1.6 gigawatths of the total electricity supply in Ontario, but it will be about 3.4 gigawatts by 2025, according to the Oeb.
Wind energy has grown dramatically since the province began importing power from wind farms.
But there is a problem: It is not clear how much wind power Ontario is importing.
Wind generation in Ontario has grown from 0.7 gigawats to 1.5 gigawaters since 2009.
The Ontario government says it needs to increase its export capacity to 1,000 megawatts.
The Ontario Energy Strategy (OES) is the province’s strategy to increase the province, from a small provincial market to a full-blown market for energy, energy services and products, as well as to develop new sources of supply for Ontario.
It calls for a net-zero emissions strategy and has proposed increasing the province to 1 million megawatts of renewable energy by 2023.
The new report, “Power from Wind: Ontario’s Powering the Future,” by Energy Source and the University of Windsor, said Ontario’s electricity supply is becoming increasingly dependent on renewable energy.
Ontario is now consuming between 4.5 and 6.7 kilowatt hours per year from wind power, with gas being the largest source of electricity in Ontario.
Wind power has been growing at about 4.8 per cent a year since 2010, and in 2021 it will reach a new peak of 5.2 per cent, the OEB study found.
The report also found that Ontario is using more gas-powered power than is needed to power its power generation.
That is mostly because Ontario is building more gas power plants than are needed, and Ontario is exporting a lot of gas to the United States.
The gas plant that is supplying Ontario with power is a gas-to-electricity plant in Quebec, but there is no natural gas supply in the province.
The study said Ontario is also using less gas to power generation than is required.
Natural-gas plants have been growing in Ontario since the early 1990s.
Ontario has about 12,000 natural gas plants.
Natural gas accounts for more than 70 per cent of Ontario’s power generation, but about one-third of Ontario power generation is imported from Canada.
Ontario exports roughly $50 billion of electricity to Canada each year.
Wind-powered generation is a key part of the Ontario power system.
In Ontario, about 40 per cent to 50 per cent or more of the power generated is generated by wind power generators.
The EOB study said natural gas, which can be stored in pipelines, is the most efficient energy source for power generation and transmission.
It said Ontario has a large amount of wind power capacity that can be used for power.
The EOBC study also said natural-gas-powered generating capacity in Ontario is increasing at a rate that is much faster than is being imported from outside the province and imported into Ontario.
In a statement to the Star, EnergySource President Rob McCallum said, “Wind power provides a significant source of clean, reliable power for Ontario, Canada and the world.
Ontario should be the world leader in renewables and we look forward to working with Ontario to further our goal of generating electricity from renewable sources.”
