As the latest energy and climate debates continue, Consumer Energy Alliance remains an advocate for distilling the challenges ahead to implement all of the various state and federal renewable energy policy proposals and carbon reduction requirements. We hope communities and policymakers not only work to ensure reliability and economic efficiency, but a cleaner, more diverse energy mix that is able to access large amounts of energy, such as hydropower, without putting downward pressure on the budgets of families and small businesses.


Every electricity generating unit – from wind turbines and solar panels to nuclear and hydroelectric powerplants – has a nameplate that tells us what the maximum amount of electrical power that the facility is capable of producing to power our homes and businesses. Because of differences in hydroelectric resources, this map examines the average annual output of hydroelectric generating stations in your state. The larger the circle, the greater the power generated on an annual basis.
