Jingle Pot Substation Museum
DISPLAYING OUR HISTORY. ONE PIECE AT A TIME.
The Jingle Pot Substation, near Nanaimo, is also a museum of BC Hydro history. The Museum was founded by Mike Morris (photo above), BC Hydro Power Pioneer and retired line supervisor from Nanaimo in 1998. Power Pioneers actively collect and accept memorabilia from all over the province. The Museum is maintained and managed by a volunteer team lead by Lori Skelcher, following Mike’s passing in 2015.
To learn more about the Jingle Pot Substation Museum or to make a donation please contact Lori or Pat Morris for more information. Small group tours can be arranged by appointment only.

Revelstoke Dam Visitor Centre
REVELSTOKE DAM. IT’S THAT BIG.
Located 5 km north of Revelstoke, the Revelstoke Dam is the second largest generating facility on the Columbia River in the Province. The powerhouse, completed in 1984, was able to generate 1980 megawatts. Since the addition of the fifth unit in 2010 the dam’s output increased by 500 megawatts. This is enough electricity power 40,000 homes per year.
To learn more about the Revelstoke Dam, how it was built and how we use water to create electricity, visit us at the Revelstoke Dam Visitors Centre.
