Hydropower is the nation’s most available, reliable, affordable and sustainable energy source. Requiring only the power of
moving water – rivers, streams and ocean tides– hydropower is also domestic and sustainable. Free from a dependence
on volatile fuel prices, much of the money spent on hydropower stays in America and expanding hydro capacity would create
hundreds of thousands of U.S. jobs.
Hydropower is keeping the lights on in every region of the country. It is America’s largest source of clean electricity,
accounting for 65.9 percent of all renewable energy generation in the United States, and with the right policies, it has
significant room to grow.
Hydropower has been a reliable source of power in the United States for over 100 years. That proven reliability benefits the
national electric grid in a number of ways, from supporting other renewable energy sources to stabilizing the network to
storing electricity for later use.
Hydropower is not only a low cost source of renewable electricity, it is among the most cost effective energy sources across
the board. And since hydro taps the self-renewing power of our waterways, electricity from hydro is not subject to
unpredictable price swings in the markets for energy commodities.
Using hydropower – our leading source of renewable energy –avoids the emission of more than 225 million metric tons of
carbon pollution in America each year.
America’s hydropower industry has the potential to create 1.4 million cumulative jobs by 2025, putting Americans to work
building a 21st century clean energy infrastructure.
Hydropower facilities often do more than produce electricity, also providing vital benefits such as flood control, navigation,
irrigation, water supply and a range of recreational opportunities.
We have been working with a series of key
companies to assist us in going through the arduous
permitting and licensing processes, designing
innovative solutions for dam adaptation, appropriate
technology and equipment selection and preparing
each of our projects for construction. See the
Development Partners page.
These projects are undertaken by AHS as the developer/owner/operator
and are located in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Maryland and are all on
US Army Corps of Engineers dams.
