Wynne government’s energy conservation program is wasting billions of public dollars: Study

TORONTO – The Ontario government’s energy conservation program is a multibillion-dollar boondoggle that wastes public money and doesn’t lower the cost of electricity, according to a new report by the Fraser Institute.

Authors Tom Adams, an independent energy and environmental consultant, and Ross McKitrick, an economics professor at Guelph University, contend in “Demand Side Mismanagement: How Conservation Became Waste,” that Premier Kathleen Wynne’s government is making outlandish claims about how much money it has saved through energy conservation that have no basis in reality.
