As the population of Ottawa continues to grow, safe and reliable power is needed to improve reliability for homes and businesses. That’s why Hydro One is planning to modernize critical equipment at the Merivale Transformer Station (TS) located in the City of Ottawa, to ensure power is available for customers now and in the future. Merivale TS is one of two major transformer stations that supply approximately 60% of power to customers across Ottawa, including to Hydro Ottawa.
The need for this investment was identified in the Ottawa Area Integrated Regional Resource Plan, through a
collective planning process which includes the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), Hydro One and
Hydro Ottawa. Once this project it completed, the expanded station will support additional power to flow through
the Merivale TS to approximately 20 Hydro Ottawa and Hydro One transformer stations connected to Merivale TS.
We’re completing the planning stage now, so that we can be ready to bring sustainable, safe and reliable power
to the City of Ottawa.
We are committed to listening and incorporating your feedback into
the planning stages of the Merivale TS Upgrade Project. This Project
is subject to a Class Environmental Assessment for Minor
Transmission Facilities – Class EA Screening Process, in accordance
with the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. Rooted in community
engagement and consultation, the environmental assessment evaluates
the Project to minimize social, economic and environmental effects.
Engagement with Indigenous leadership and communities, community
members, municipalities, government agencies, interest groups and
others through opportunities like community open houses is an
important part of the environmental assessment and will help us
identify the location for this needed electricity infrastructure,
