Ontario Power Generation in Clarington

Big news! Ontario Power Generation (OPG) recently announced the establishment of a new corporate headquarters in the Municipality of Clarington.

The existing Darlington Energy Complex (located south of Highway 401) and a new building will be part of the expanded campus.

Expected to be completed in 2024, all of OPG’s non-station-based positions in Toronto, Niagara and Durham Region will be relocated to Clarington.

Ken Hartwick, OPG President and CEO stated:

“This is an exciting opportunity for OPG to create a high-tech energy hub that promotes innovation and collaboration across the organization and with our partners and suppliers. This new campus will also help OPG reduce its real estate footprint and reduce the use of commercial leased space thus reducing costs that will benefit the Ontario ratepayers.”

The Municipality of Clarington and the Regional Municipality of Durham are thrilled with the news.

Simon Gill, Director of Economic Development and Tourism for the Regional Municipality of Durham remarked:

”We expect specialized engineering, environmental, construction and related professional service industries to grow rapidly here. Plus, our strong relationship with OPG is a major driver for economic growth.”

OPG produces about half of the electricity Ontarians rely on every day.

Durham Region is an energy sector leader; known as the Clean Energy Capital of Canada.
