Solar: Harnessing the sun's rays
Look up in the sky, what do you see? A vital source of clean energy.
In addition to providing heat and light, the sun’s rays can be harnessed by photovoltaic panels and converted into carbon-free electricity to power homes and businesses.
OPG is tapping into the sun’s power at the Nanticoke Solar facility, which generates 44 megawatts through more than 192,000 solar panels. Learn more about how solar power is keeping Ontario’s future bright.
