Bruce Power donates $25,000 to ice storm relief fund



January 9, 2014

Bruce Power will donate $25,000 to the Ontario government's food replacement program, which will help families who lost perishable items due to lengthy power outages caused by the Dec. 22 ice storm.

'Bruce Power is proud to heed the call of Premier Kathleen Wynne for corporate assistance in helping Ontarians replace food lost during this historical power outage in Ontario,' said Duncan Hawthorne, President and CEO. 'By working together, we can give thousands of people a much-needed boost as they recover from the challenges they've experienced in the aftermath of the unprecedented ice storm in this part of the province.'

Bruce Power - the world's largest operating nuclear facility with eight units providing 6,300 megawatts of safe, affordable and carbon-free electricity - is reliably providing over 35 per cent of Ontario's energy today, as it did on the days immediately following the ice storm.

'While the government's skilled workforce gave up their holidays to fix the province's electrical infrastructure, Bruce Power and its employees continued to provide a reliable base of affordable power to the rest of the province throughout the event,' Hawthorne said. 'As the province's crews fixed downed lines and poles, we made sure the power was there to give to the people of Ontario.'
