Clydesmill Power Station was built as one of the first 'base-load' power stations in Scotland after the creation of the National Grid. It was subsequently extended. It was originally owned by the Clyde Valley Electric Power Company Limited.

the original station dared from about 1903, with further extensions.This was a very large power station by the standards of the time, as it had some very significant consumers among its industrial neighbours, including the Clyde Iron Works and Clydebridge Steel Works.
