Bruce Power is home to eight CANDU reactors currently producing 30% of Ontario’s electricity at 30% less than the average residential price of electricity, and produces 50% of the world’s Cobalt-60, a substance used to sterilize disposable medical supplies. This makes Bruce Power the world’s largest single provider.
