Planned natural gas-fired power plant to be relocated

The Ontario Power Authority (OPA) and TransCanada Energy agreed to relocate a proposed 900 MW natural gas-fired power plant from a site outside of Toronto to Ontario Power Generation’s Lennox Generating Station near Bath.

The new site has existing transmission lines and other infrastructure. Total costs that cannot be repurposed at the new site are approximately C$40 million ($40.8 million), including all payments made in relation to the original site which include the cost of engineering design and permits. OPA will purchase the turbines originally scheduled to be used at the Oakville plant and repurpose then for use at the Lennox site.

The move was made after local residents and elected officials voiced concerns over the plant’s location.
