OPG has been busy working to fulfill our ambitious vision of electrifying life in one generation.
From developing Small Modular Reactors, to overhauling our reliable hydro fleet, to advancing a Canada-first pumped hydro energy solution, we are laying the groundwork for our electric future one megawatt at a time.
In the latest issue of OPG’s Net-Zero News, learn more about these projects and all of our ongoing clean energy initiatives.

Strengthening our hydro fleet
On the St. Lawrence River, work has begun on an expansive 16-unit, 16-year overhaul of our R.H. Saunders Generating Station, Ontario's second-largest hydroelectric station. This major refurbishment will ensure decades more clean power from this 65-year-old workhorse. Read the story.
