Welcome to the Municipality of Meaford's Pumped Storage Project website!

We invite you to explore this page to learn more about the work Meaford is doing to prepare for TC Energy’s proposed Ontario Pumped Storage Project.

TC Energy is proposing to build a 1,000 MW Pumped Storage facility on a portion of land within the 4th Canadian Division Training Centre in Meaford. The project is targeting a final investment decision in 2024 and is expected to be in-service in 2030. 

On February 27, 2023, the Municipality of Meaford passed a resolution to conditionally support TC Energy’s proposed Pumped Storage Project. 

Meaford Council’s support is contingent on TC Energy fulfilling the following conditions:

  1. Reasonable cost recovery by TC Energy for all costs incurred by the Municipality.
  2. Development of a regulatory plan to address the Municipality’s role throughout the project’s lifecycle.
  3. Successful negotiation of a Community Benefits Agreement; and
  4. Completion of all applicable federal and provincial environmental assessment processes and obtain all associated permits and approvals. 

In order for the Municipality of Meaford to understand how the project will impact the community, the municipality will undertake a community engagement and learning process as well as an independent technical review. This work will ultimately lay the foundation for a Benefits Agreement between the Municipality and TC Energy.

Together, let's shape the future of our community for the better.
