Securing Long-Term, Reliable Power in Ontario - Province Negotiates New Contract with Ottawa Generator

March 10, 2014

Ontario has negotiated a new agreement between the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) and TransAlta Corporation to secure electricity production for the next 20 years.

The contract will guarantee TransAlta's natural gas-fired cogeneration facility in Ottawa will provide electricity to the provincial grid and reduce the need to build new generation. Locally, the plant provides heating and cooling to the Ottawa Health Sciences Centre, which includes the National Defence Medical Centre and the Rideau Veterans Health Centre.
