The Thomas Low Generating Station project is a proposed hydroelectric generating station in Renfrew, Ontario. The station is being constructed adjacent to the existing Lower Plant, located on the Bonnechere River.

Named after the original builder of the Lower Plant, the Thomas Low Generating Station will have an installed capacity of approximately 4 MW with an annual average energy generation of 16.6 GWh once complete.

Renfrew Power Generation, Inc., the owner of the project, launched the construction of the Thomas Low Generating Station for two reasons. The project will completely renew the existing end-of-life generating infrastructure. It will also provide a long-term source of renewable energy in response to the Province of Ontario’s goal to meet a growing power demand and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases.
