Ontario invests C$2.3 billion for "greener" power grid
http://www.reuters.com/article/GCA-GreenBusiness/idUSTR...

TORONTO (Reuters) - The Canadian province of Ontario, keen to get more of its electricity from renewable energy sources, said on Monday it would spend C$2.3 billion ($2.1 billion) over the next three years to expand and upgrade its power transmission network.

"Enhancing our transmission grid is critical to taking advantage of green energy," said George Smitherman, Ontario's minister of energy and infrastructure.

"Resources like wind and hydro aren't often where the people are, and this plan will ensure we can bring renewable green power to the people of Ontario," he said in a statement.

Smitherman, who made the announcement at the opening ceremony of the Canadian Wind Energy Association's annual conference in Toronto, said the investment is expected to create 20,000 jobs.

This is the type of project that Van Jones was working on for the Obama Administration, I believe...

I wish them great success...!!
