    In its heyday during the 1960s, Lakeview produced 17 per cent of Ontario's power. The plant's first generator fired up in 1961, the year before Premier John Robarts officially opened the plant. During its existence, Lakeview provided some 215 billion kilowatt hours of power. The plant was later closed as part of a plan to phase out coal powered generating stations across Ontario.

     Future Plans
    Might be demolished... but a lot of news articles suggest it will be re-converted to natural gas or a cleaner energy source as part of the contract agreement when OPG sold it.

    Demolition of the stacks slated for June 13th

    Demolition on the main building itself is moving forward full steam it seems. Going...

    Demolished on June 28th, 2007.
