OPG to Decommission Lambton Generating Station


By Editors of Power Engineering

Ontario Power Generation (OPG) announced today it will decommission its Lambton Generating Station in 2017. 

The power producer said in a statement that continuing to preserve Lambton beyond 2016 was no longer economically feasible, and that the decommissioning would save its customers $11 million. The facility stopped using coal in 2013 in an effort to combat climate change. Conversion of the plant to a cleaner-burning fuel was projected to be unprofitable.

OPG will continue to own the Lambton site. Options for repurposing it will be reviewed over the long term.
