The run-of-river Pingston facility is located near Revelstoke, B.C. The first 30-megawatt phase of the project became fully operational in 2003, and the second 15 megawatt phase was completed in 2004.
A four-kilometre tunnel drops water 557 metres through two turbines located in the powerhouse below. This drop, or head, is the third highest in Canada. The facility generates about 200,000 megawatt hours per year of emissions-free power.
As an integral part of the project, fish habitat was enhanced by installing rock reefs and logjam structures. A fish spawning channel was also constructed.
TransAlta owns and operates the Pingston facility through its wholly owned subsidiary Canadian Hydro Developers.
Note: The Pingston facility operates as Pingston Power Inc.
