Hydroelectricity produces the most affordable renewable power we generate. We have the largest fleet of hydro plants in New England with 36 stations across Vermont.
Many of our facilities are LIHI certified which means we have met the LIHI Certification Criteria, demonstrating that the environmental impact is low compared to other hydropower facilities.
Collectively these stations quietly power Vermont affordably and reliably, generating enough to power 56,000 homes.
Some of our sites also provide fun public access facilities, like picnic areas and boat ramps as well. Two of our most popular plants for tours are Proctor Hydro, and our hydro facility in Essex Junction.
If you are planning an outing on or near the water, please stay safe and refer to the current streamflow conditions.
