Fraser Institute’s “Wind and Sunlight” report misses the mark, says CanWEA
August 6, 2019
The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) has responded to the Fraser Institute’s recently released report, Generating Electricity in Canada from Wind and Sunlight: Is Getting Less for More Better than Getting More for Less?
According to this report, wind and solar create higher costs and produce fewer environmental benefits than proponents claim.
“The Fraser Institute has missed the mark on the facts and conclusions in its analysis of the contributions renewable energy is making in Canada,” stated Jean François Nolet, VP of Policy, Government & Public Affairs with CanWEA. “Wind energy provides reliable, cost-effective and clean electricity to provincial grids while generating local economic development, creating thousands of jobs and reducing carbon emissions across Canada.”
