TransCanada in Ontario
In Ontario, TransCanada operates nearly 8,000 km of natural gas pipeline and 78 compressors stations. We have been transporting clean natural gas to communities throughout Ontario since 1958.
We operate the 683 MW Halton Hills Generating Station — a natural gas fuelled combined cycle facility in Halton Hills, Ont. With our partners, the Ontario Power Generation, we operate the 550 MW Portlands Energy Centre (also a natural gas fuelled combined cycle) in the port lands of Toronto, Ont. As well, TransCanada will be acquiring nine Ontario solar facilities that would produce 86 MW of renewable energy.
TransCanada also owns a significant portion of the Bruce Power nuclear facility in Tiverton, Ontario. Bruce Power consists of two generating stations (Bruce A & B) with each station housing four nuclear reactors. With the recent completion of the extensive refurbishment program on Units 1 and 2 at Bruce Power, the facility’s eight operating units are capable of producing more than 6,200 megawatts of clean and reliable electricity into Ontario’s power grid. TransCanada’s ownership includes 49 per cent of Bruce A and 32 per cent of Bruce B.
