PNGS slated for exit by 2025 Pickering Nuclear Generating Station (PNGS) is located on Lake Ontario, 25 minutes east of downtown Toronto. Built in the late 1960s through the mid-1970s, PNGS at roughly 3,100 megawatts became the dominant source of electrical supply to the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and has remained so ever since.
