Thompson Celebrates Bruce Power in the Ontario Legislature


 (Queen’s Park)—Today Lisa Thompson, MPP (Huron-Bruce) stood in the Legislature to recognize Bruce Power, the world’s largest nuclear facility as they celebrated their 12th Anniversary last week.

Below is Thompson’s transcript from the Legislature today:

Thank You Speaker.

I rise today to congratulate the largest operating nuclear facility in the world, Bruce Power, on their 12th Anniversary, which was celebrated last week.

Not only were they celebrating their anniversary, but also the launch of their free iPad App to provide people in Ontario with an interactive tool, which has an energy calculator to better understand the cost of their energy bills.

This feature allows users to input their monthly electricity use and compare the costs of the different sources of energy generation, the average percentage cost impact from each source and the amount of CO2 produced.

The App also provides extensive information on the role Bruce Power plays in Ontario to provide a safe, reliable source of affordable electricity through videos, news feeds and interactive figures.

The App also features Bruce Power’s extensive engagement efforts to improve the lives of people in communities it serves and also provides user tips on things we can all do to conserve electricity.

Bruce Power has always been at the front of innovation and this is no exception.

The free App can be downloaded at www.brucepowerapp.com.

Users who download the App before June 15 have the opportunity to enter a draw to win free electricity for a year.

I want to congratulate Bruce Power and their President and CEO Duncan Hawthorne for their 12 years of innovation, community dedication and clean, affordable, energy production.

Thank you Speaker.
