Welcome to RENEW – a quarterly publication of the Ontario Waterpower Association. This edition celebrates Ontario’s proud history of waterpower. With the support of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport’s Ontario 150 Program, the OWA will be undertaking public outreach and education featuring the almost forty (40) facilities that have been providing reliable, affordable electricity for more than a century. The redevelopment of Cascade Falls in Parry Sound is a prime example of the significant and unique lifespan of these assets. And as discussed in the “Last Word”, it is this attribute that ensures waterpower will continue to moderate the province’s electricity prices.
