Ontario Completely Off Coal

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 like wind, 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 to end 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.

Ontario is still connected to the national grid. There is no way it is possible to guarantee that electrons flowing into the grid from outside of Ontario were not produced with coal.

As one of the commenters mentioned above, they're still connected to a larger grid, but it's a step in the right direction nonetheless.
