York Energy Centre

The York Energy Centre (YEC) is a natural gas-fired electricity generating facility that provides power during peak demand periods.  Located northwest of Newmarket, Ontario and commissioned in May 2012, York Energy Centre has the capacity to produce reliable electricity for over 400,000 homes in the Greater Toronto Area.  This unique facility is the largest quick-response gas-fired plant in Ontario, allowing emergency response generation to the grid in less than 30 minutes, as well as supporting intermittent supply from wind, solar or other non-baseload renewables.

East Windsor Cogeneration

The East Windsor Cogeneration Centre (EWCC) is a cogeneration facility using modern technology to generate reliable clean power for over 80,000 homes in the Windsor area and steam for Ford’s Windsor operations. The project encompasses approximately 1.5 acres of industrial land, located adjacent to the existing Ford powerhouse and is equipped with modern emission controls that meet all federal and provincial air quality standards.

London Cogeneration Facility

The London cogeneration facility is on a site adjacent to Veresen’s London district energy system facility in London, Ontario. Commercial operations commenced at the facility in late 2008. The London district energy system utilizes all of the London generation facility’s steam output.
