We sell power to Hydro One and we lease power generating equipment. In some cases, NSPG has a Power Purchase Agreement (“PPA”) directly with the Independent Electricity System Operator (“IESO”), who has taken over the FIT and Micro FIT programs from the Ontario Power Authority (“OPA”). In other cases, we lease equipment to operators and homeowners who have their own PPA. We also operate and maintain projects for some of our clientele, and individuals in need of our services.
Photovoltaic generating technology dominates our generating asset portfolio.
The projects we own span across Ontario; from Rainy River in the west, to Blind River (the center of Ontario!), to London in the south and to Ottawa in the east.
NSPG is very similar to most PUC’s in Ontario. The Town of Blind River is a municipal corporation. NSPG is a business corporation, wholly-owned by the Town of Blind River.
The Town of Blind River, seeing the value in a greener future for its community and surrounding area, wished to participate in the economic opportunities also arising under the Ontario Green Energy Act enacted in 2009. NSPG’s Articles observe Sections 141, 142 and 144 of the Electricity Act. Under Section 141(1) of the Electricity Act, a municipal corporation can generate electricity and transmit, distribute and retail it but only through a business corporation set up under the authority of Section 142.
