About OPG

Ontario Power Generation is an Ontario-based electricity company. As one of the largest power companies in North America, we produce more than half the power used in most homes, schools, hospitals and businesses in Ontario.
 
Through a focus on continuous improvement, OPG has built a solid track record of operational performance excellence, supplying safe and reliable electricity at a low cost.
 
All aspects of OPG's business are guided by the values of safety, integrity, excellence, people and citizenship. We also have strong programs in place to ensure we operate in a safe, open and environmentally responsible manner.​

What we do

We own and operate:

  • 2 nuclear power stations
  • 2 thermal power stations
  • 1 biomass power station
  • 65 hydroelectric power stations on 24 river systems
  • 2 wind power turbines.

OPG also owns two other nuclear power stations which are leased to Bruce Power L.P., and it co-owns the Portlands Energy Centre and the Brighton Beach gas-fired generating station.

2013 quick facts

  • OPG's generating capacity was more than 16,000 megawatts (MW).
  • More than 95 per cent of our electricity came from nuclear and hydroelectric, which produce virtually no emissions that contribute to smog or climate change.
  • As of Dec. 31, 2013, the Nanticoke and Lambton coal-fired stations were removed from service in accordance with the Shareholder declaration to cease the use of coal by the end of 2014.
