How We Do It

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.

What We Own

Photovoltaic generating technology dominates our generating asset portfolio.

Where We Are

Our projects 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.

What We Are

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.

Why We Are

The Town of Blind River wished to participate in the economic opportunities 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.

NSPG Mission Statement

Our primary mission is to install, own, operate and/or maintain reliable sources of renewable energy. Our business strategy is comprised of dedicated business units, each functioning on a particular area of our expertise and operations. We will strive to operate in a safe and professional manner, provide long-term employment to local residents and generate economic benefits for the area. We will continue to work smart and hard so that our Owners and Clients can count on the revenue streams that we provide. We will continue to support our community as our primary mandate.
