TIVERTON, ONTARIO, Dec. 14, 2009 (Marketwire) -- Bruce Power is pleased that Alberta's nuclear consultation process confirms the technology could play a role in the province's future energy mix.
In a news release issued earlier today, the Government of Alberta said nuclear power will be given the same consideration as all other energy options.
"We've said all along we're grateful for the opportunity to make the case for nuclear to the people of Alberta," said Duncan Hawthorne, Bruce Power's President and Chief Executive Officer. "It's encouraging to see the door remains open for us to demonstrate we can bring value to the province and help Alberta meet its future energy needs without contributing to greenhouse gas emissions."
Any decision to proceed further will require us to take another look at the commercial case given the changing market conditions we have seen over the last 18 months, Hawthorne said.
