Generating stations

Nearly all of the electricity we produce each year is clean, renewable power generated at 15 hydroelectric generating stations.

We also operate 2 thermal generating stations (Brandon & Selkirk) and 4 small remote diesel generating stations (Brochet, Lac Brochet, Shamattawa, & Tadoule Lake). In 2016, our total generating capability is 5,690 MW.
