Peter Sutherland Sr. Generating Station


The Peter Sutherland Sr. Generating Station (GS) is now producing clean, reliable, low-cost electricity. The project, which is a partnership between Taykwa Tagamou Nation (TTN) and OPG, was completed on March 31, 2017 – safely, on budget and ahead of schedule.

Located at New Post Creek, which is about 75 km north of Smooth Rock Falls, the two unit station will provide 28 megawatts of renewable, low-cost and reliable electricity to the provincial grid, enough to power 28,000 homes.
 
Water flowing down New Post Creek will be used to generate electricity, while the remaining water will continue to flow over the falls to maintain the original beauty of the falls.
 
Peter Sutherland Sr. GS is named after a respected community elder.
 
“This project has gone well due to the relationship we’ve built on a foundation of respect and trust,” said Coral Rapids Power President Wayne Ross. “There have been many benefits for our community including good paying jobs, transferable skills, and a long term revenue stream.”
 
The Peter Sutherland Sr. Generating Station project was assessed under the provincial Environmental Assessment (EA) Act, and was subject to the Class EA for Waterpower Projects as a new project on a managed waterway.
