Hydropower is a reliable, affordable source of emissions-free electricity that harnesses the power of water to generate energy. Dams stop the flow of a river, allowing us to direct it into the powerhouse where the water turns blades in a turbine, spinning a generator and producing electricity. Hydropower is a great partner to other renewables, providing a steady and reliable source of electricity that enables us to integrate more wind and solar.
