This generating station, located at the W.A.C. Bennett Dam, provides 24 per cent of BC Hydro’s hydroelectric power. Currently, there are several capital projects underway at this generating station and the W.A.C. Bennett Dam to replace the station’s 50-year-old equipment. The largest in terms of budget is the replacement of five turbines and this project was completed in fall 2015.
In 2018, work began to install new exciter transformers on units one through five. Work is also continuing on the rip-rap and spillway upgrades.
