Every summer, Hydro Ottawa invites the community to explore Canada’s oldest, fully functioning hydroelectric generating station as part of the annual Doors Open Ottawa.
Doors Open Ottawa is a City of Ottawa initiative in which visitors are given the opportunity to learn more about what has been hiding in their “backyard” while exploring some of the city’s most prestigious buildings and facilities.
This is an amazing opportunity to share Hydro Ottawa’s heritage with the public and our commitment to the investment in innovative generating facilities. By opening the doors of Generating Station No. 2 to residents who otherwise may never have the chance to see inside this century-old gem, Hydro Ottawa experiences firsthand the value of community.
