Ontario Power Generation produces more than half of the electricity that Ontario homes, schools, hospitals and businesses rely on each day. We are committed to ensuring our energy production is reliable, safe and environmentally sustainable for Ontarians today and for the future.
At the forefront of energy technologies, OPG phased out coal generation in 2014, which represents the single largest climate change initiative in North America. Our energy powerhouses - hydro and nuclear - are 99.7 per cent free of greenhouse gas and smog causing emissions.
OPG has partnered with Ontario's First Nations and Métis
communities on hydroelectric projects, including the recently completed Lower Mattagami project in northeast Ontario.
We are currently preparing to refurbish our clean energy powerhouse, the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station. Slated to start in 2016, the Darlington refurbishment will be one of the largest infrastructure projects in Canada.
