Located on the shores of Lake Ontario just east of Toronto, and nestled in the community of Pickering is one of the world’s largest nuclear generating facilities: the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station.
Pickering is one of Ontario’s most important generating assets. OPG’s technical work shows the station can be safely operated to 2024 and that doing so would save Ontario electricity customers up to $600 million, avoid eight million tons of greenhouse gas emissions and protect 4,500 jobs across Durham Region. Plus the operation of Pickering during the Darlington and Bruce Nuclear refurbishments will ensure a safe, reliable supply of electricity.
The plan to extend operation of Pickering to 2024 is a direct reflection of a positive Environmental Assessment, and an Integrated Safety Report, which confirms the safety and strength of the station’s condition. All six units would operate until 2022; two would then shut down, and four would run to 2024. OPG has started work on a Licence application for Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission approval in 2018.
