OPG and its partners, Sun Edison Canadian Construction LP and Six Nations Development Corporation, have been selected by the Independent Electricity System Operator to develop a 44 megawatt solar facility at the Nanticoke Generating Station site on Lake Erie.
The Nanticoke Solar project is OPG’s first venture into solar generation. Fittingly, the project will be built on a former coal generation site, bringing new life to the area and symbolizing the transition from coal to clean, renewable energy.
The partners are working together to obtain the required approvals and contracts needed to start construction.
The Nanticoke solar project is OPG’s fourth with Indigenous partners. Hydroelectric partnerships with the Lac Seul First Nation and Moose Cree First Nation and have helped increase our clean energy portfolio. Currently, OPG is working with the Taykwa Tagamou Nation on the Peter Sutherland Sr. Generating Station at New Post Creek.
