Ontario Power Generation will produce more clean, renewable electricity by adding generating units at existing stations in Little Long, Harmon and Kipling. The existing Smoky Falls Generating Station will be replaced with a new three-unit, LEED Silver Certified station. The stations are located approximately 70 kilometres north of Kapuskasing and 200 kilometres south of Moose Factory.
The project will produce approximately 440 megawatts of new hydro power without creating new dams on other rivers. This will reduce the environmental impact that would otherwise be caused by new developments.
Hydro stations typically remain in service for 90 years or more. Hydro electricity is crucial to Ontario's electrical system because it provides renewable energy on demand, when it’s needed most.
