Almonte: The frozen Mississippi River
In the background are the Olde Almonte Flour Mill (redeveloped into condo units) & the Enerdu Waterpower generating station
Enerdu Power Systems Ltd. opened the redeveloped Enerdu Generating Station in Almonte, Eastern Ontario, on 27 April 2018.
« The project had a significant heritage component. The new generating station was built next to the existing station and efforts were made to minimize impacts on the adjacent flour mill and other heritage properties. The building that houses the existing powerhouse was built in 1842 as the Wylie Flour Mill. Although the Mill has been reconstructed several times, the powerhouse function has been in existence since at least 1905. »
