Upper Stave River

The Upper Stave River Project is a run-of-river hydroelectric facility with an installed capacity of 33 MW and an average yearly energy output of 144.400 MWh. Construction of the Upper Stave River Project commenced in May 2007 and the COD was achieved on November 2, 2009. The Upper Stave River Project uses the hydraulic resources of the middle reach of the Stave River, with the point of diversion 1.9 km upstream from the powerhouse, which in turn is 18 km upstream of the discharge of Stave River into Stave Lake.

The Upper Stave River project has been granted the ECOLOGO® certification.
