Enersource's Earth Days Initiative "Project Forest-STATION" Continues

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 25, 2008) - Enersource marked Earth Days this week, by continuing a tradition, dubbed "Project forest-STATION," which began in 1995. With shovels, plenty of top soil and numerous sapling trees, the utility's substation maintenance employees and Executive team descended upon Woods Municipal Substation (MS) yesterday to further naturalize the Webb Drive site located near Mississauga's city centre.

"Woods MS is one of 80 substation sites that we maintain across the city and we pride ourselves on keeping these properties clean and presentable," said Nick Galanis, Enersource Substation Supervisor. "Most sites are already attractively landscaped to fit with surrounding homes and businesses, but there are opportunities to add more trees here and there, and that's what this yearly project is all about."

Built in 1989, the City of Mississauga has grown up around Woods MS. Today the site is nestled between high rise residential development and a busy shopping mall. Inside the building are transformers capable of delivering 40 megawatts of electricity to an area west of the city core between Dundas Street and Rathburn Road. Ultimately Enersource engineers expect this capacity demand to double, and so too will the facility. The 2008 Earth Days initiative, added a variety of evergreen trees to the existing landscape of the property in areas not planned for future expansion.

Enersource Corporation is a diversified power company, focusing on quality of service with the local distribution of electricity and non-regulated technology services related to the electricity sector. The Corporation is 90% owned by the City of Mississauga, and 10% owned by BPC Energy Corporation.
