Hydro Ottawa Holding Inc. is once again leading the way to a smart energy future.
Through its subsidiary Portage Power, it has acquired two additional hydroelectric generating stations from TransAlta Renewables located on the Mississippi River in the Town of Appleton and Galetta Falls.
With a passion for environmental sustainability, Portage Power is the largest municipally-owned producer of green power in the province of Ontario.
Including the addition of these two generating stations, the company will now own and operate 18 run-of-the-river hydroelectric generation plants in Ontario, Quebec and New York in addition to the 16 solar installations it has across the city of Ottawa.
The Appleton Generating Station (GS) is located on the Mississippi River, in the town of Appleton, Ontario. The plant was built in 1994 on the site of an old mill and consists of a powerhouse building, intake channel and control dam.
The Galetta (GS) is located near Almonte, Ontario on the Mississippi River where it connects with the Ottawa River. Originally built in 1907, the plant consists of a control dam, intake canal, powerhouse and tailrace channel.
"Given the inextricable link between energy and the environment, how energy is produced matters. This acquisition aligns us with Canada's goal of a 100 per cent emissions-free electrical grid by 2035 and takes us one step closer to our net-zero operations goal. Investing in green energy will help us build a brighter and more sustainable future for the communities we serve." Bryce Conrad, President and Chief Executive Officer, Hydro Ottawa Holding Inc.
