Federal Government Approves Environmental Assessment
In May 2012, the Federal Government approved the Darlington New Nuclear Project (DNNP) Environmental Assessment (EA) concluding the project will not result in any significant adverse environmental effects, given mitigation. For more information, read OPG’s media release.
The DNNP involves the construction and operation of new nuclear power reactors at OPG’s existing Darlington site, in the Municipality of Clarington. The project will provide up to 60 years of clean, reliable, cost-effective electricity for the people of Ontario. It will be one of the largest capital infrastructure projects in Canada, creating significant benefits for many years including employment, business and supplier opportunities and increased municipal revenue.
