Small hydropower coming to Ontario's Twelve Mile Creek

Ontario Map

City and province officials have approved the construction of a new small hydropower project along Twelve Mile Creek in St. Catharines, Ontario.

The Shickluna hydroelectric plant, announced at a ceremony by Ontario Minister of the Environment Jim Bradley and St. Catharines mayor Brian McMullan, will have a cumulative output capacity of up to 4.2 MW when completed.

Shickluna was approved under Ontario's Hydroelectric Standard Offer Program, which assists cities in constructing hydropower projects between 400 kW and 5 MW in capacity.

"We are pleased that with the support of Minister Bradley, we can now move forward with our renewable energy project," McMullan said. "Shickluna will create local jobs and generate millions of dollars in revenue."

The run-of-river project is expected to generate between US$718,000 and $900,000 per year for St. Catharines, which received approval for the plant from the Ontario Power Authority in February.
