Want to learn more about Canada’s power system? Browse through CBC’s Special Report Power Switch. The interactive report takes a look at how power is generated and distributed in Canada and provides a good collection of information on our electricity system.

Make sure to take a look at Canada’s Power Supply Map which shows the types of power plants used across Canada and how these are expected to evolve over the coming years. Use the slider below the map to move from 2010 to 2020 and watch our power supply change. The map displays power plants across Canada that generated 50 megawatts or more. You can highlight Wind to see how wind power is expected to evolve over the coming years.  Have fun! Lydia – Student and Friend of Wind
