In 2019, Chelan County Public Utility District (PUD) took an important step in support of hydropower, the largest generator of renewable energy in the United States. The North Central Washington utility teamed up with the National Hydropower Association to release a report, “Reinvigorating Hydropower,” aimed at bolstering the energy resource in the coming decades.
The report emphasizes hydropower’s role in keeping the grid reliable. As demand for carbon-free resources grows, it’s also a strategic partner with wind and solar to achieve environmental goals and optimize the electrical grid. Hydropower, the report highlights, is a premier renewable energy resource in terms of both cost and carbon reduction.
