The Green Electron Power Project, together with its affiliate Eastern Power Limited, is developing a 280 MW combined cycle natural gas fired electricity generating plant. The facility is to include one gas turbine, one heavy recovery steam turbine with an auxiliary duct burner, and one steam turbine. This project was originally proposed for Mississauga, but was relocated near to Sarnia in 2012. The cancellation resulted in political controversy over the mishandled and costly relocation. Relocating the plant was estimated to cost $275 million, according to Ontario’s Auditor General. The new site, currently occupied by the coal-powered Lambton Generating Station, will utilize the transmission network already in place. A 20-year contract has been secured to sell energy to OPA.

Environmental and site plan approvals are expected to be completed by 2014 with a completion date expected in fall 2017.
