Ontario Power Generation's Northeast Plant Group operates 13 hydroelectric generating stations on four rivers: the Abitibi, Matabitchuan, Mattagami, and Montreal rivers. Since 1910, stations in Northeastern Ontario have played a key role in ensuring the province receives the electricity it needs to thrive.
These stations provide a clean, low-cost, renewable and reliable source of power to Ontarians year-round. Their combined capacity is over 1000 megawatts (MW). The plant group's annual production is in the range of four billion kilowatt-hours.
For almost a century, Ontario has relied on the topography of the northeast region to produce electric power. OPG and its predecessor companies have a long history in the community, dating back to 1910 when the first units at Hound Chute GS and Matabitchuan GS went into service.
