The Twin Falls Generating Station is situated on the Abitibi River, in Teefy Township, and controls the discharge of Lake Abitibi. The original powerhouse was completed in 1922 with five vertical shaft Francis turbines and Westinghouse air-cooled generators. In 1999 the switchgear was modernized and in 2009 the controls were updated. All five generators were rewound between 1982 and 1992, increasing the total generation capacity to 27 MW.
