York Energy Centre
The York Energy Centre (YEC) is a natural gas-fired electricity generating facility that provides power during peak demand periods in northern York Region. The YEC was proposed in response to the Ontario Power Authority’s (OPA) 2008 Request for Proposals for northern York Region and was commissioned May 7, 2012.
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.
Veresen has two gas-fired cogeneration facilities located in California, the Ripon facility located east of San Francisco in the city of Ripon, and the San Gabriel facility located east of Los Angeles in the city of Pomona. The Ripon facility sells its output to Pacific Gas & Electric. The San Gabriel facility sells output to Southern California Edison.
