Description: Located near Ophir, Colorado, in the Illium valley, the Ames Station is the world's first generating station to produce and transmit alternating current. First built in 1891 to power the Gold King Mine, the current structure became operational in 1906. Two Pelton wheels power the generator from two different penstock sources. Water sources are from Trout Lake and Lake Hope. Links to other hydro plants in the area.
