Central Operations in the Community

A number of OPG’s central Ontario facilities have been part of the local community for more than one hundred years. This includes our oldest facility, the Sills Generating Station (GS), which started production in 1900. Other legacy generating stations like Big Chute, Frankford, Healey Falls, Eugenia, Seymour, and McVittie were built between 1900 and the 1940s. Churning out clean, renewable power for local communities and the mining, cement, and pulp and paper industries, they also helped attract new manufacturing and processing industries.

At 550 feet, Eugenia GS has the highest head of all OPG hydroelectric generating stations. Head is the vertical change in elevation between the reservoir at the top and the tailwater at the bottom.

Corporate Citizenship

As part of our commitment Central Ontario, OPG supports more than 60 local not-for-profit initiatives through our Corporate Citizenship Program. Our initiatives focus on the following categories: education, community, and environment. Current or past partnerships include Science North, Métis Nation of Ontario, North Bay Regional Health Centre, and the Town of Gravenhurst.

Safety First

OPG reminds you to please pay attention to all fencing and signage near our hydro stations and dams, and to Stay Clear and Stay Safe. If you are interested in touring one of our facilities, please contact Central’s community representative (see below).
