Chippewa Hydro Power Plant Visit

Posted on December 16, 2012 by Andrew Zebell

On December 14th, Wildlands High School students had the opportunity to go on a very educational field trip to the Chippewa Hydro Power Plant, located on the Chippewa River.  We were given a tour of the power plant and learned all about how electricity is produced by water and a dam. I thought the most interesting thing about it is that the turbines are immense in size and only spin at about 100 RPM (Revolutions per Minute) but still create an insane amount of power. It was a really cool experience and it made me and probably everyone else who went on the trip very interested in visiting the "mother" plant just off of Lake Wissota.
