Brazeau

The Brazeau Plant is TransAlta's largest hydro plant. It is one of two TransAlta hydro plants on the North Saskatchewan River System in Alberta.
 
TransAlta's 13 hydroelectric plants primarily serve to provide electricity during periods of peak electrical demand. Their operating flexibility means they can start quickly to introduce hydro power within minutes. The Brazeau Plant generates enough power each year to supply the equivalent of 56,285 Alberta households.
 
The plant was named for Joseph Brazeau, a linguist and Hudson Bay employee. Brazeau helped with the Palliser Expedition, which completed the first major survey of the prairies.
