New Small Hydro

Hydro electricity generation uses the force of falling or fast-moving water to produce power. Small-scale hydro in Yukon would either be a traditional plant with a dam and reservoir to store water, or a run-of-river plant. Run-of-river operations use the natural flow of a river, with little – if any – storage reservoir.

We are considered several new small hydro plants as an option for our 2016 Resource Plan.
