Power partners for Peter Sutherland Sr.

In March 2017, OPG and partner Coral Rapids Power, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Taykwa Tagamou Nation (TTN), completed the Peter Sutherland Sr. Generating Station, another source of clean, reliable, electricity.

Located at New Post Creek, about 75 km north of Smooth Rock Falls, the station lies within the traditional territory of TTN who remain equity partners in the station.

Named after a respected TTN community elder who passed away in 1998, the station has two units that generate 28 megawatts of renewable, low-cost electricity – enough to power about 28,000 homes

Progress for OPG partners

This project is a great example of OPG's commitment to partnering with Indigenous communities on infrastructure projects that generate clean, reliable energy for Ontarians, while providing revenue and lasting economic benefits for the local community.

This 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.
