OPG Commits to Net-Zero Emissions by 2040 (Ind. Report)
Ontario Power Generation
Date: 2020-11-27
In Toronto, Ontario Power Generation (OPG) has released its Climate Change Plan that includes an increased use of renewable energy, ambitious goals aimed at driving efficient, economy-wide decarbonization and economic renewal, while protecting the environment.

The plan builds on the utility's decades of work to reduce its carbon footprint. In 2014, the company delivered the world's single largest climate change action to date when it stopped burning coal for electricity, and has continued to demonstrate clean power leadership with the expansion of its hydro fleet and partnerships such as the Gull Bay micro grid and Nanticoke Solar facility. OPG is currently working on refurbishing the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station, which is one of Canada's largest clean power projects. Once refurbished, the continued operation of Darlington will avoid an estimated 297 million tpy of carbon emissions.

"Our goals will be guided by several principles including: a commitment to adapt to new technologies and changing policies, be as transparent as possible, follow scientific evidence, respect Ontario customers, and meaningfully engage with Indigenous communities," the release notes.
