The Farad Powerhouse was built in 1899 by Truckee River General Electric Co. (Rebuilt 1933), a corporate predecessor of Sierra Pacific Power Co., one of four mini-hydro plants originally built to run the silver mines in the Comstock Lode. In Sept 2000, Sierra Pacific Resources announce that it would sell its water business and the cities of Reno and Sparks, along with Washoe County, formed TMWA to acquire the related assets including the four mini-hydro plants. Farad has been out of service since 1997 when its approach flume was washed out.
