Project Overview

Capital Power is proposing equipment upgrades at the York Energy Centre (YEC) to support the need for new power supply in Ontario. The upgrades will provide operational flexibility and approximately 38 MW of additional generation capacity, which is reflective of an 8.95 percent (%) increase in the total generating capacity of the YEC.

Background

Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) has identified a significant need for new power supply in the province. At the system level, the IESO is projecting a generation capacity deficit starting in 2025. This project is part of an overall effort to help meet increasing local and provincial electricity demands by providing critical generation support, better enabling both a reliable supply of electricity and flexibility in support of intermittent renewable energy sources like wind and solar energy.

Leveraging existing natural sky bettinggas facilities by providing new or extended contracts, as well as upgrading and expanding capacity, was identified by the IESO as critical for maintaining reliability over the medium term. The IESO’s Same Technology Upgrades procurement program aimed to procure 300 MW of capacity through improvements to existing facilities across Ontario. Proposed upgrades to the YEC were part of this targeted call for capacity increases from existing facilities. Capital Power executed a contract with the IESO in mid-2023. Learn more.

Project details

The upgrades will be limited to the replacement of a variety of gas turbine parts with more advanced technology, upgradable materials, and/or higher performance levels. Upgrades also include a power augmentation system in the form of inlet air cooling, replacement of cooling fans, and updates to control logic programming. The upgrades would be completed during a regularly scheduled maintenance outage in March 2025.

Sky BetProject construction work is related only to equipment upgrades within the existing YEC. No physical earthworks are required outside of the existing facility footprint, and there will be no changes to current use or maintenance practices at the facility.

Regulatory process

According to Ontario Regulation 50/24 (Part II.3 Projects – Designations and Exemptions) under the Environmental Assessment Act, modifications to a natural gas-fired generating facility that increase the facility’s capacity by 5 MW or more are subject to review under the Environmental Screening Process for Electricity Projects (ESP).

The ESP has two tiers of assessment: Screening Stage and Environmental Review Stage. Capital Power is voluntarily completing an Environmental Review.

The Environmental Review will assess potential environmental impacts of the equipment upgrades, which are expected to be limited to minor changes sky bet app loginin air emissions that will continue to meet provincial emission requirements.

The results of the assessment will be documented in an Environmental Review Report that will be made available for public review. The Environmental Review will assess any potential effects of the equipment upgrades but will not re-evaluate the previously approved, operating YEC facility.

The Project will also require an amendment to the YEC’s existing Environmental Compliance Approval (Air & Noise). No other federal, provincial, or municipal/local permits or approvals are anticipated to be required.

Consultation and engagement

We value and consider local community interests and priorities. We engage government, employees, local communities, investors, shareholders, and Indigenous communities. Please contact us if you have any questions or comments or want to be added to the project mailing list.
