Hydropower has been a vital source of energy in the Northwest and Spokane region for over a century. With abundant water resources, the region’s rivers and dams have been harnessed to generate clean, renewable energy for homes, businesses, and industries.

This has not only helped to meet the energy needs of the growing population but also contributed to the region’s economic growth and development. Hydropower has been a reliable source of electricity, providing a stable foundation for the region’s energy mix.

Additionally, hydropower plays a critical role in balancing energy supply and demand, especially during peak seasons and emergencies.

As the world grapples with the challenges of climate change and transitioning to a low-carbon economy, hydropower in the Northwest and Spokane has proven to be a sustainable and efficient source of energy, providing a reliable and renewable energy future for generations to come.
