Campbellford Generating Station

Campbellford Seymour GS was constructed in 1910 by the Campbellford PUC. In 1994, in partnership with Algonquin Power, the facility was increased in size from 2 MW to 6 MW. In 2000, when the Ontario electricity market was deregulated, Peterborough Utilities Inc. (PUI) acquired the site from the town of Campbellford.
PUI's interests in this site are held under its wholly owned subsidiary,  Campbellford Seymour Electric Generation Inc. (CSEGI).  CSEGI operates under a head lease with the federal government.

The original facility (Plant No. 1) utilizes Francis type turbines and synchronous generators. One of the units produces 1.2 MW and the other 0.8 MW for a total output of 2 MW.  PUI is responsible for operation of Plant No. 1.

Plant No. 2 is constructed immediately beside the original and utilizes two vertical S-type Kaplan turbines.  Each of the two generators is capable of producing 2 MW for a total output of 4 MW.  Algonquin Power presently operates Plant No. 2 under a sub-lease agreement with CSEGI.
