It takes energy to make energy. In 2010, electricity generators in British Columbia, Yukon, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut
consumed 97,370,960 GJ and
emitted 1,899,322 GHG tonnes.
Eventually, some of this produced energy makes its way into your home for lighting and air conditioning, and for running appliances and computers. It's also used in our offices, public buildings and other places where we shop and play. Greenhouse gas emissions associated with production are not typically attributed to the end user's account when we talk about them.
But some people are beginning
to do so.
