Headquartered in Renfrew, OPG’s Eastern Operations manage one thermal facility located in Bath, and 10 hydroelectric generating stations and associated water control structures on the St. Lawrence, Ottawa and Madawaska Rivers. These hydroelectric stations, which range from 40 to 100 years old, have a combined generating capacity of 2,668 megawatts (MW), or enough electricity to power over 2.5 million homes.
In addition to power production, the hydroelectric generating stations and supporting structures provide additional benefits to the region, including flood control, and recreational and commercial activities. OPG is also a major employer in this region. Our ongoing operations and maintenance programs provide a positive economic impact to local industries and businesses.
OPG operates these facilities within the traditional territories of the Mohawks of Akwesasne along the St. Lawrence River; the Algonquin of Pikwàkanagàn and Algonquins of Ontario in the Ottawa Valley; and Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte.
As a proud community member, OPG provides support to over 175 not-for-profit initiatives across these regions from Cornwall to Mattawa. Our partnerships also include programs aimed at educating the public on water safety around hydro stations and dams. To learn more, please visit www.opg.com/watersafety
