The energy minister has confirmed the province will not continue with plans to spend close to $10 billion in the construction of two new nuclear reactors.
Bob Chiarelli says the Liberal government will still be refurbishing the reactors which currently exist.
The reason behind cancelling the plans is because the province apparently doesn't need the extra electricity anymore.
While Chiarelli underlines nuclear is still the main component of the province's electricity system, he says there will be no plans for new nuclear infrastructure in the province's updated energy plan set to be released later this year.
Nuclear plants provide Ontario with about half of its power right now.
