Together we will #PowerON
This is our promise to you.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us all to question everything we have always taken for granted. I know that as millions of you stay home to help slow the spread of this virus, you’re feeling uncertain about the future. But you can feel certain of this: OPG’s dedicated frontline workers will continue generating reliable electricity to power Ontario’s hospitals, care facilities, and homes.
Across our operations, these employees are continuing their important work. Operators, technicians, and trades at our nuclear, hydro and thermal stations are ensuring our units are generating power safely and reliably; nuclear and dam safety workers are protecting the community and our operations; hygiene advisors are working to assess employees’ health; and our security teams, emergency response personnel, and cleaning staff are continuing to keep our sites safe.
They do this because they are dedicated to their jobs. They also know that now more than ever, their efforts can provide a sense of continuity, something you can count on.
In the coming days and weeks we will be sharing their stories as well as OPG’s efforts to support our communities and frontline health care workers. We’ll also share information about the steps we’re taking to ensure a reliable safe supply of power for Ontario.
On behalf of all our employees, thank you for staying home and doing your part. We will do our part and together, we will #PowerON
