OPG in Bruce County: Community Update – June, 2022


Fred Kuntz, Sr. Mgr., Corporate Relations and Projects | Bruce County

Working together:  Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and Bruce Power recently released their annual Collaboration Report for 2021, highlighting how we work together on nuclear-station refurbishments and more. The report focuses on the joint efforts of OPG and Bruce Power to keep the lights on, support the economy, and protect the environment. “Nuclear energy is one of the keys to Ontario’s clean electricity system, now and in the future,” said OPG President and CEO Ken Hartwick. “Our collaborative approach to nuclear refurbishment will ensure we continue to identify efficiencies and provide value while securing additional decades of the clean, reliable, safe power Ontarians need.”

Democracy in action:  Congratulations to everyone who won a seat in the Ontario Legislature in yesterday’s provincial election, as well all the runners-up, volunteers and returning officers, and all who voted.  You can be proud of your commitment to civic engagement, so vital to the proper functioning of democracy. OPG, whose sole shareholder is the government of Ontario, is reaching out to new and returning MPPs alike with information about OPG operations and projects in their ridings, including in the Bruce area

On a personal note, I am retiring from OPG after today, at age 65. It has been my privilege to work for a utility that serves the public good, produces medical isotopes that save lives, and fights climate change by delivering clean energy. Thank you to everyone at OPG and in our community who helped make it enjoyable and interesting,” Fred Kuntz.
