This particular generating station is located on the Wanapitae River and entered service in 1925. The Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario acquired the plant from the Wanapitae Power Company in 1930. The station contains two generator turbines.
Northern Ontario is spattered with countless small hydro-electric projects such as this feeding into the grid. While there isn't much to see, and the building is quite sealed, I found it interesting just the same.
It's located immediately next to what appears to be a popular place to launch boats. The day I visited, there were about three trailers parked nearby, and one more being backed into the water.
