In 1900 the Bracebridge Generating Plant was built at the bottom of Bracebridge Falls. One generator was installed that produced 300 kilowatts at 2400 volts. In 1904 another generator was added that also produced 300 kilowatts at 2400 volts. At a cost of $12M, this plant was upgraded in 2012 and now produces 2,600 kilowatts.
In 1909 Wilson's Falls Generating Plant was built 2.4 kilometers up the North Branch of the Muskoka River from Bracebridge. It produces 600 kilowatts at 4160 volts and uses the original (rewound) generator from 1909. At a cost of $11M this plant was upgraded in 2012 and now produces 2,900 kilowatts
