Scone Generator is a single-unit hydroelectric station located on the North Saugeen River in Scone, Bruce County. Scone began selling electricity to the grid on December 19, 1986. The station has an installed capacity of 70 kW at a head of 16 feet.

Scone has no penstock. The powerhouse and dam is situated on 4.2 acres of land. The millpond consists of 50 acres that extends into Grey County, and feeds the station through a 10 feet x 10 feet trash rack in front of the intake chamber. The intake chamber is a 10 feet x 10 feet concrete structure, the powerhouse is a 24 feet x 24 feet double brick structure, and the tailrace/spillrace are divided by a concrete wall.

Scone is connected to Feeder F2 from Marmion DS, which is fed by the 44kV 36M4 from Hanover TS, which in turn is fed by the B4V primary circuit and the BV5 secondary circuit.

This hydroelectric generating station generates approximately 525 MWh of renewable energy per year.
