Reliable power: The Napanee Generating Station will ensure greater reliability of Ontario’s electrical system by replacing retired coal and nuclear capacity, supporting nuclear refurbishment and providing a source of on-demand power to backstop wind and solar resources.
The Napanee Generating Station (NGS) will help ensure greater reliability of Ontario’s electrical system by providing a reliable source of power to assist in meeting the daily supply needs of the province. NGS has been designed as a flexible system resource with the ability to start and stop daily and to vary its output to help meet Ontario’s electricity demand.
The facility will be located adjacent to the existing Ontario Power Generation Lennox Generating Station site in the southern portion of the Town of Greater Napanee, in the County of Lennox and Addington. By siting the station at this location, NGS is able to share several services with Lennox Generating Station including electrical and natural gas connections, water intake and discharge facilitates, and other infrastructure services.
NGS will use the latest in generating and environmental controls technology which will make it one of the most efficient and cleanest generating stations in Ontario.
TransCanada has been engaging with local stakeholders since October 2012 and has completed environmental studies which indicate that NGS will have little or no effect on the environment and surrounding community, both during construction and operations. Engagement with community residents and stakeholders will continue throughout the construction and operations phases of the project.
