Southport Power Plant ceased operations on March 31, 2021. This facility has been safely secured under the guidance of an experienced project manager and environmental consulting firm to ensure the site is managed in an environmentally sound manner while it undergoes the decommissioning process. Decommissioning will be followed by equipment removal, building demolition and salvage, and site reclamation work that is expected to continue through 2021, and possibly into 2022.
Capital Power would like to express its sincere gratitude to the City of Southport and Brunswick County, as well as to our employees and many community partners in the area – we’re proud to have served the community for the past 15 years as owner and operator of the Southport Power Plant.
We appreciate the opportunity to deliver reliable power and support these economies, as well as to contribute to local charities and community organizations over the years – including farewell contributions to our friends at:
- Southport Fire Department
- Dosher Memorial Hospital Foundation
- Brunswick Family Assistance Agency
- Brunswick County NAACP Branch
Consultation and Engagement
We value and consider local community interests and priorities. We engage government, employees, local communities, investors, shareholders, and Indigenous communities. Our goal for every project, every facility and every initiative, internal and external, is to act and align with the interests and priorities of those closest to, and most impacted by, our work.
