A part of Ontario’s history.

Waterpower was Ontario’s (and Almonte's) first source of electricity. Since the days before confederation, waterpower has helped fuel Ontario’s (and Almonte's) growth. The durability of waterpower facilities ensure that future generations will benefit from affordable, reliable electricity.
