This is Pickering:I will gladly have a Nuc close to me. The taxes they provide and the income to workers makes for a great community with lots of money from tax base to spend. School systems and recreation areas are always great near these plants.
It's eight reactors used to provide 4,124MW of power, meaning it provided about 50% of the GTA's electricity. Down two units now thanks to an incompetent government, she's ~3,100MW, so still able to power about 2 million homes. The four newer B units are ~40 years old now and need their mid-life refurbishment, but the current plan is to shutter the plant instead of proceeding with that.
