Triple Bottom Line Impacts
Currently, the US has over 100,000 MW of untapped energy potential in its existing dams, waterways, and conduits – enough to power 300,000,000 electric cars for one year. Yet, over the past two decades almost no new domestic hydropower has been installed.
Recently, a new generation of demands, technologies, processes and regulations have created a window of opportunity to achieve compelling, long-term, “triple bottom line” impacts from a modern small hydro portfolio.
