Safety, diversity and responsibility

OPG’s diverse, clean and low-cost electricity generation portfolio includes:

  • 66 hydroelectric stations

  • Two nuclear stations

  • One biomass station

  • One dual-fuelled oil and gas station

  • One solar facility

We operate our stations in a safe, transparent and environmentally-responsible manner. This includes protecting and enhancing the local environment, supporting the provincial and local economies and helping make our site communities better places to live, work and play.
