A powerful partnership

We're building the blueprint for the Marmora Project, a proposed 400-megawatt closed-loop hydroelectric pumped storage project in the Municipality of Marmora and Lake. With enough renewable energy to power up to 400,000 households when demand is at its highest, this innovative project could be the next made-in-Ontario solution to address our growing need for reliable electricity.

This eastern Ontario project is a joint venture between Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and Northland Power, and is currently progressing through a gated approvals process managed by the Independent Electricity System Operator.
