A planned maintenance and inspection program is underway on Unit 4 at Bruce A that will see an investment of approximately $110 million in the 750 megawatt unit. The unit was shut down Friday after a year of continuous service providing, clean, reliable and affordable electricity to the provincial grid.
This investment is being made so the unit can run safely and reliably through its next operational cycle,
said Dave Andrews, Plant Manager, Bruce A.
“By investing now, we are setting the table for continued safe, reliable performance and helping keep the air clean for Ontario families.”
Bruce Power provides 30% of Ontario’s electricity at 30% below the average price and its operations inject more than $4 billion into Ontario’s economy every year. Ontario’s Long-Term Energy Plan is counting on Bruce Power’s eight units to supply clean, reliable electricity for decades to come.
About Bruce Power

Formed in 2001, Bruce Power is an all-Canadian partnership among Borealis Infrastructure Management (a division of the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System), TransCanada, the Power Workers’ Union and the Society of Energy Professionals. A majority of Bruce Power’s employees are also owners in the business.
