Electric Power Generation and Distribution

  • Harnessing Hydropower

    ELECTRIC POWER GENERATION AND DISTRIBUTION
    Built in the Great Depression, the Hoover Dam is one of the greatest engineering marvels in modern history. It once exemplified best practices when harnessing hydroelectric power as well as formed the largest reservoir in the U.S., Lake Mead, which supplies sustenance to approximately 20 million people. The world may never see another dam as magnificent as Hoover Dam, but the Renewable Energy generation industry has found its new poster child for the future of hydroelectric power generation in in-pipe hydroelectric systems.
