Eastern Power Inc. is proposing the construction, operation, decommissioning, and abandonment of a natural gas and hydrogen-fueled electricity generating facility located in the Township of St. Clair, about 15 kilometres south of Sarnia, Ontario.
As proposed, the Hydrogen Ready Power Plant Project would have a production capacity of 600 MW and will include a gas turbine, heat recovery boiler, steam turbine, cooling tower and an electrical substation. The project is expected to be in operation for at least 25 years.
Funding provided by the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada is now available to help the public and Indigenous groups participate in the impact assessment process for the proposed Hydrogen Ready Power Plant Project, a natural gas and hydrogen-fueled electricity generating facility located approximately 15 km south of Sarnia, in Ontario.
Funding is available for eligible individuals and groups to assist their participation during the impact assessment’s planning phase. During the current comment period, which ends July 13, 2022, you are invited to review the summary of the Initial Project Description and provide comments. The Agency will retroactively reimburse eligible participants for their participation in this first comment period.
Applications received by midnight Pacific Daylight Time on July 15, 2022, will be considered.
As a next step, the Agency will determine whether a federal impact assessment is required for the project. If one is required, eligible applicants will receive additional funding to participate in a second comment period during which they will be invited to provide feedback on the draft Tailored Impact Statement Guidelines and the draft Public Participation Plan.
