NDP Leader Andrea Horwath is calling on Ontario's auditor general to investigate the $231 million cost of scrapping almost 800 renewable energy projects by Premier Doug Ford's government.

Fearing an escalation in costs as was seen when a previous Liberal government axed natural gas-fired plants before the 2011 election, Horwath wrote a letter Wednesday to auditor general Bonnie Lysyk after Energy Minister Greg Rickford brushed aside pleas to call her office in.

"These cancellations ... made public last summer have had little public scrutiny and your auditing of their full costs is necessary for the public to fully understand the financial implications," Horwath wrote.
