OPG may delay further payments to Bruce municipalities
Municipal councils in Bruce County are being warned by Ontario Power Generation they may not receive hosting payments next year for the proposed deep geologic repository. OPG has written to councils included in the hosting agreement, informing them the money they receive each year as part of the hosting agreement will be deferred if a license to begin constructing the DGR is not granted by the end of 2015. The OPG hosting agreement annually pays $650,000 to Kincardine; $250,000 to Saugeen Shores; $70,000 to Huron-Kinloss; and $40,000 each to Arran-Elderslie and Brockton, but the payments can be deferred and held in trust should a milestone in the project be missed.
