Ontario and Bruce Power begin planning for massive new 4,800 megawatt nuclear power addition

Bruce Power and the Province of Ontario announced initial work on the first major new nuclear power generating station in this country in two generations.

This is not “small modular reactors,” but 4,800 megawatts of “big nuclear,” to be built adjacent to the existing Bruce Nuclear Generating Station, on the shores of Lake Huron. For perspective, the most power SaskPower has ever generated was 3,910 megawatts on Dec. 30, 2021. If each of the new reactors turns out to be 1,200 megawatts – just one of those reactors would equal all four, combined, that Saskatchewan is currently considering.
