In the following weeks, TransCanada continued to investigate other site options for gas-fuelled facility in response to this RFP. We would like to advise you that we are now proposing the Oakville Generating Station(OGS) facility. The proposed OGS is to be located on industrial land on the south side of Royal Windsor Drive just east of the Service Road in Oakville. OPG and Ford are not partners in the proposed OGS.
Similar to the process we undertook in January, the OGS project team will be reaching out to interested stakeholders in the coming weeks to provide information about this proposal and seek input into our proposed plans.
You may contact our project team by calling 1.866.317.9887 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. A project website has been developed for this project and we invite you to stay informed about the project by visiting www.transcanada.com/oakville.
If you are interested in receiving further information about this proposal, please reply to this email and request that your contact information be included on our list.

5.8 Million in 2008...How Many Light Bulbs Will Torontonians Turn Off During Earth Hour 2009?
When the clock strikes 8:30 p.m. for Earth Hour, and Toronto goes dark, how much electricity will we collectively remove from the City's grid?
During last year's event, Torontonians rallied together to turn off their lights and all non-essential appliances to drop demand by whopping 8.7 per cent - removing 262 Megawatts. That's enough electricity to power 150,000 homes or the equivalent of taking 5.8 million 60 Watt bulbs off the grid!
Although those results are impressive, we're confident Torontonians can do even better in 2009.
This year the global phenomenon will take place on Saturday, March 28, from 8:30 - 9:30 p.m., and it's fast approaching. As a sponsor of WWF's Earth Hour 2009, Toronto Hydro is encouraging its business and residential customers to support this lights out initiative. Toronto Hydro will also power down its own facilities and once again measure the success of Torontonians as they power down and cut electricity use.
How your constituents can participate in Earth Hour:
Sign up at www.earthhourcanada.org
Turn off all lights and non-essential appliances on March 28, between 8:30 - 9:30 p.m.
Practice electricity conservation every day to reduce electricity consumption by registering for Toronto Hydro conservation and demand management programs
Toronto Hydro will have a booth at the Nathan Philips Square Earth Hour event. To partner with us at this event, contact Denise Attallah at email@example.com.
To learn about all of Toronto Hydro's planned Earth Hour activities, watch for the next edition of City Wise, March 26th.
Toronto Hydro offers many conservation programs for its residential and business customers. Sign up for peaksaver®, or recycle your old energy-guzzling fridge with The Great Refrigerator Roundup. Switch over to compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) instead of old incandescent lights or participate in our Business Incentive Program or Power Savings Blitz.

If there was one thing you could do this spring that would help you save money, improve your quality of life, and mitigate the effects of climate change, all from your own backyard, would you do it? If the answer is yes, then get ready to plant a tree. Here are three reasons why this simple act is so good at giving back.
It’s recession time and guess what – trees are one green fix that helps you save the green stuff! Mature trees and shrubs, when placed strategically for shade, can cut air conditioning needs significantly. They can also have a positive effect on real estate values, with leafy neighbourhoods being more desirable places to live. LEAF (Local Enhancement and Appreciation of Forests) is a local, non-profit organization that can help you plant a tree in your backyard. Because the program is subsidized for Toronto residents, you pay only $100 to $180 per tree, a great price considering that it includes a 30-minute yard consultation with an arborist to help you choose the best species and planting location, a 6 to 8 foot tall tree and full planting service.
As a bonus for your home, trees reduce noise pollution by acting as a sound barrier. They also provide a nice shady spot to relax once those sunny days come our way again. Because LEAF’s mandate is to plant trees and shrubs native to this area, your new addition will thrive in Toronto’s climate and soils, as well as bring around those colourful butterflies and songbirds that are so fun to watch. And for the gardener, many species of shrubs and trees that LEAF offers will add an attractive element to any garden.
Aside from improving your own property, you will also feel good knowing that you are improving Toronto’s environment for all residents, and decreasing the effects of climate change. Trees and shrubs absorb carbon dioxide and filter other air pollutants that are harmful to human health. Their leaves also intercept rainfall, slowing it down and reducing the amount of water that must be transported and treated by our storm water infrastructure. That’s good for all of us, because it saves tax dollars!
Visit http://www.leaftoronto.org/node/178 or call 416-413-9244 to inquire about the Backyard Tree Planting program today! LEAF staff will be happy to assist you with details on how you can take part in the program. Yard consultations start in March and continue through to the end of November. Planting happens in spring and fall.
By choosing to plant a tree this spring, you will be adding to Toronto’s urban forest, which gives us all relief from the heat, concrete and noise of the city, improving our overall health and wellbeing. It’s a small act that will make big difference
