Demolition of a former Ontario Power Generation station in Thunder Bay is underway after its decommissioning in 2018.

The plant, which began operations in 1963, was shut down briefly in 2014 after being powered by coal for decades. The plant was converted to biomass or wood pellets for its short run afterwards.

The majority of the property is expected to be demolished over the next two to three years, but some buildings will be left alone for potential use in the future.
