The Lac Seul generating station is a 12-megawatt unit located on the English River. The station went into service on Feb. 18, 2009, and is capable of generating approximately 52 million kilowatts of hydroelectricity per year. That's enough electricity to meet the yearly demand of 5,000 homes.

OPG and the Lac Seul First Nation formed a historic partnership in which the First Nation owns 25 per cent of the Lac Seul Generating Station. The station is also known by its Aboriginal name of "Obishikokaang Waasiganikewigamig." In the Ojibway language, this means White Pine Narrows Generating Station. White Pine Narrows is the original Ojibway name for the area where the station is located.
