Since 1970, the waters of the Churchill River have been diverted into the Churchill Falls hydroelectric power station.

The Churchill Falls power station has the second largest hydroelectric-generating capacity in North America (5,428 MW (7,279,000 hp) installed, expandable to about 6,300 MW (8,400,000 hp)) and is also the second largest underground power station in the world, after the Robert-Bourassa generating station in northern Quebec.
