Hydropower Project on the Kapuskasing River Is a First for Many Reasons

The Kapuskasing River Waterpower Project is a 22-MW development of four hydroelectric sites along the Kapuskasing River in northeastern Ontario, Canada. Construction on the project began in 2005. What is unique about this project, is how it successfully demonstrates a new business model for hydropower, perhaps the first of its kind, through the collective partnerships of the five owners, which include three First Nation communities (Brunswick House First Nation, Chapleau Ojibwe First Nation and Chapleau Cree First Nation), the municipality of Kapuskasing and the private developer, Hydromega Services Inc.
