The Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and Coral Rapids Power are teaming up to develop approximately 25 megawatts of renewable hydroelectric power by building a generating station on New Post Creek.

The project is expected to create up to 100 new construction jobs in Northern Ontario, according to the Province.

The New Post Creek hydroelectric project will include a generating station, a dam and powerhouse.

Construction on the generating station is scheduled to start in 2014 and begin service by 2017.

The OPG currently operates 13 stations in Northeastern Ontario.

“Hydroelectric power has long been a central pillar in the government’s renewable portfolio and will continue to play a crucial role in our energy mix,” said energy minister Bob Chiarelli.
