Brampton, ON – At the recent Committee of Council meeting, Alectra announced its plan for the construction of a brand-new operations centre located at 200 Kennedy Rd. South in Brampton.

The new facility will be LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified to Gold Standard and function as the consolidated operations centre for more than 400 Alectra employees serving Mississauga and Brampton. A ground-breaking ceremony is tentatively scheduled for August 2021, and the project is planned to be completed by August 2023.

In alignment with Alectra’s plan to be Net-Zero by 2050, this $52 million project will reduce Alectra’s carbon footprint, generate renewable energy, and use solar powered EV stations, while improving service for residential and commercial customers in the Region of Peel. The new building will be the fifth LEED certified facility in Alectra's portfolio of buildings, in addition to the company's LEED Gold facilities in Vaughan and Markham, and its LEED certified facilities in Guelph and Barrie.

"The investment in this building will improve service levels for our customers across the Region of Peel” said Brian Bentz, President and CEO, Alectra Inc. “The facility includes a number of green innovative initiatives which we’re really excited about, and which will ultimately help us achieve our long-term goal to be Net-Zero by 2050."

“Brampton is a Green City, and, together with our partners, we are dedicated to building an increasingly sustainable community and increasing our resilience to climate change. We are excited that Alectra has chosen Brampton for the site of its new operations centre, and look forward to witnessing the added benefits this new location will bring to the local businesses in the Kennedy Road area,” said Patrick Brown, Mayor, City of Brampton.

Some of the LEED certified building features will include: 

  • upgraded dedicated outdoor air systems (DOAS) - reducing GHG emissions by approximately 43% beyond LEED Gold standards 
  • 500KW in rooftop solar power generation - over 800 MWh/year of renewable energy will help meet building power requirements 
  • over 30 electric vehicle charging stations to be installed and used by Alectra fleet vehicles, employees, and the general public

Additionally, Alectra is investing $30 million over the next five years to replace and rehabilitate deteriorated underground cables in Brampton. To learn more about Alectra’s commitment to people, the planet and our performance, visit
