Jones Falls Generating Station is a three-unit hydroelectric station located on the Cataraqui River in Elgin, Ontario. The station has been in service since 1949. The station has an installed capacity of 2.4 MW at a head of 18.3 metres.
The station is run-of-river without storage capability. The headwork consists of a stone arch dam. The concrete intake is equipped with steel trashracks and uses stoplogs to control water. Three pressure-treated wood stave penstocks convey water to the concrete powerhouse. Water is discharged into the Cataraqui River.
The station is connected to Canadian Niagara Power’s 26 kV circuit 27-11 from the Gananoque main substation.
This hydroelectric generating station generates approximately 7,039 MWh of renewable energy per year.
