Champlain Spinners

The Champlain Spinners power station is a 700-kilowatt hydroelectric generating station located in the town of Whitehall, New York.  The facility is located at Lock C12 on the Champlain Canal, one mile south of Lake Champlain, where the Canal has merged with and roughly follows the former route of the Mettawee River. The facility was built in 1992 on the site of a former silk mill from which the hydro facility takes its name.  It produces nearly 2 million kilowatt-hours of clean energy in a typical year.  Champlain Spinners operates under an exemption from licensing from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC Project No. 5296).
