ADVOCACY IN ACTION

c. Retail prices should encourage use of surplus emissionfree electricity for fossil fuel displacement
d. The design of these voluntary smart price plans should
take into account the state of technological capability of
the LDCs' metering and communication infrastructure.
OSPE's research concludes that there will be sufficient
surplus emission free electricity in the long term to displace
36 per cent of the fossil fuel use in 1.3 million homes.
OSPE also estimates that the annual total energy bill savings
that a typical residential consumer can expect using the
proposed Energy Plus Peak Demand Smart Price Plan outlined
in the report would be approximately $800/year for a fuel oil
consumer with a carbon price of $50/tonne CO2, and $720/year
with no carbon price.

Ontario's budget builds on the foundation of four
pillars:
1. Restoring Fiscal Balance in a Responsible and
Sustainable Manner
2. Putting People First by protecting Health Care
and Education
3. Making Life More Affordable
4. Making Ontario Open for Business and Open
for Jobs by lowering business costs
The Government of Ontario's deficit for the
past fiscal year is reported to be $11.7 billion. This
deficit is projected to be reduced to $10.3 billion
by the 2019-20 fiscal year, and to be balanced in
5 years. The government has also committed to
lowering Ontario's net debt by the 2022-23 fiscal
year to less than the 40.8 per cent of GDP in 2018.
Finance Minister Vic Fedeli highlighted that the
government is "taking steps to attract businesses,
create jobs, and provide opportunities for our
emerging engineers, nurses and tradespeople."
