Donate a little, save a lot
With your help, we can save Ontario billions, actually lowering your electricity bills.
cause of Ontario’s rising electricity bills is high-priced nuclear projects that never deliver on their promise of affordable power. The real
solution is to import low-cost, clean and safe water power from Quebec rather than wasting $21 to 35 billion on another generating station boondoggle – the re-building of the aging Darlington Nuclear Station. By making a donation
to the OCAA, you can help us shine a light on how we can keep electricity costs under control.
