Ontario hydro plant starts generating ahead of schedule

19 April 2017

A 28MW hydroelectric generating station has been brought online ahead of schedule and on budget in Ontario, Canada.

The two-unit Peter Sutherland Sr. Generating Station on New Post Creek is a partnership between Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and Coral Rapids Power, a company wholly owned by Taykwa Tagamou Nation (TTN). The project is named after a respected community elder.

“Ontario’s newest waterpower generation station further demonstrates our government’s commitment to building a clean and reliable electricity system,” said Ontario Energy Minister Glenn Thibeault. “Not only will it help to support a healthier environment and cleaner air for today and future generations, this project highlights a partnership between Taykwa Tagamou Nation and OPG that delivered meaningful economic benefits to the local First Nation community.”

 “This project has gone well due to the relationship we’ve built on a foundation of respect and trust,” added Coral Rapids President Wayne Ross. “There have been many benefits for our community including good paying jobs, transferable skills, and a long term revenue stream.”
