Xeneca Power Development (Xeneca) is a leading Canadian-owned and operated waterpower development company working throughout Northern Ontario. Xeneca's management team has a combined total of close to 100 years' worth of experience in the waterpower industry. We are committed to building small renewable electrical facilities to power Ontario’s long-term economic development in an environmentally responsible manner.
Xeneca’s small hydroprojects are part of a province-wide effort to eliminate our dependency on dirty, coal-fired sources of electricity generation, and to encourage development of clean, renewable sources of electricity generation. Xeneca has 19 Feed-in-Tariff contracts through the Ontario Power Authority, representing 72 MW of power.
We get a lot of questions about why Ontario needs more power. Currently, our province has a surplus of baseload power, but lacks peaking power production, so efforts are being made to increase availability of “stored power.” Waterpower is an excellent means to balance the supply mix. Water can be stored in headponds, or simply redirected when needed to generate power, and, unlike fossil fuels and biomass, there are no emissions.
Xeneca has the capability to build Greenfield projects from the early stages of site selection & feasibility to design, construction, operation & maintenance.
