AuSable River (NY)

Alice Falls

The Alice Falls power station is a 2,100-kilowatt hydroelectric generating station located in the town of Keesville, New York. The facility uses energy from the AuSable River through the elevation change at Alice Falls. The facility’s two vertical Kaplan turbines produce over 8 million kilowatt-hours of clean energy in a typical year. The  facility began commercial operation in 1991 and was completely overhauled in 2016 following a component failure that resulted in a flooded powerhouse. Alice Falls operates under a license from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC Project No. 5867) that is valid until 2023.
