Part of the Global Gas Plant Tracker, a Global Energy Monitor and Center for Media and Democracy project.

CPV Nanticoke power station was a proposed 1,200-megawatt (MW) gas-fired power plant in Haldimand County in the province of Ontario, Canada. It is also called the CPV Nanticoke Energy Centre.[1]

As of November 2019, the project has not progressed in more than four years and appears to be cancelled.

Background

In March 2011, CPV announced that it had completed the Environmental Screening Process for the power station and that it could be in service by 2015.[1]

The power station was to be built a few blocks away from the Nanticoke Generating Station, a coal-fired power plant that closed down in 2013[2] and has since been replaced by a solar farm.[3]

CPV provides no other development information on the Nanticoke Energy Centre.[4]
