Hydropower 101

C3 Solutions outlines how to grow hydropower in the United States.

The C3 Take
  • Hydropower is a clean and renewable energy source that is important in an “all of the above” energy strategy.
  • The current regulatory process is cumbersome and slows down the development of hydroelectricity in the United States.
  • By reducing regulations and streamlining the permitting process, we can grow hydropower in the United States and meet our climate goals.

“While hydropower is still our largest source of renewable energy, the growth of hydroelectricity is hindered by extensive government regulations. By streamlining burdensome regulations and permitting processes, we can continue to grow hydropower in the United States.”
