Ranney Falls output to double in refurb project, says OPG

19 October 2017

Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is to replace the smallest generator at its historic Ranney Falls Generating Station with a modern 10MW unit, more than doubling the station’s capacity.

The new generating unit, which is expected to be operation in 2020, will produce enough energy each year to power about 10,000 homes. The refurbishment project will also include the installation of a new water spillway.

OPG’s Ranney Falls Generating Station was built in 1922 by OPG’s predecessor, The Hydroelectric Power Commission of Ontario, and has provided clean renewable electricity for almost a century.
