Interesting article. Can someone tell me if the word "hydro" is used as a synonym for "electricity" either in Canada or just in Ontario?
It appeared so from several lines in the article.
"The provincial business group said that an adequate hydro supply should be in place before coal is phased out."
"Council is confident that new technology can convert the Nanticoke coal fired generating station into a cleaner source of hydro."
"If the Ontario government will not move from its 2009 goal to shut the plant, county officials want to be informed about alternatives for the hydro transmission lines out of the plant and about the province’s future power generation plans."
I realize that the provincial power company is Ontario Hydro, but the way that the word is used above is slightly confusing to an American.
