The Canadian province of Ontario has officially shut down its last coal burning power plant.
Power for the province now comes from "emission-free electricity sources likewind, solar, nuclear and hydropower, along with lower-emission electricity sources like natural gas and biomass." The province had set a target of the end of 2014 toend its use of coal to generate electricity.
The Thunder Bay Generating Station was the last coal fueled power plant in the province. Now that it has burned the last of its coal supply, the plant will be converted to a biomass-fueled power plant.
