Hydro Ottawa announced Monday that it plans to buy Hydro-Québec’s remaining hydroelectric assets at Chaudière Falls, pumping enough additional energy into the province’s grid to power 22,500 homes a year.

The company, which is wholly owned by the City of Ottawa, will acquire from Hydro-Québec the remaining 33 per cent interest in the Ottawa River ring dam, as well as a 27-megawatt generating station on the Gatineau side of Chaudière Falls.
