Hydropower Is Clean, Renewable Energy
For more than a century, Hydropower has generated clean, renewable electricity. The history of hydropower is deeply woven within the fabric of communities throughout this nation. It powered the textile mills in Lowell, Massachusetts during the Industrial Revolution, and produced the electricity needed to make aluminum for the U.S. military in World War II. And, in addition to homes and businesses, it provides tech companies and data centers with affordable and reliable energy. Today stands ready to build a more resilient, sustainable economy powered by a carbon free electricity grid.
