THE ADVANTAGES OF HYDROELECTRIC POWER
Simplicity in the movement of water
Electricity is produced simply by the movement of water, which exerts a force on turbines connected to an electrical generator. The more powerful the movement, the greater the amount of electricity produced.
The quintessential green source
Generating energy from hydroelectric power does not introduce pollutants into ecosystems, and does not use any substances that can alter the natural composition of the water.
Safe and adaptable
Water is safe. To transform it into energy, you don’t need fossil fuels. And it is adaptable. Indeed, a hydroelectric plant is able to precisely regulate the intensity of incoming water flows and the final production of energy, characteristics that make this resource particularly adaptable to the needs of the power grid.
Once the power plant has been built, the production of hydroelectric power has low maintenance and operating costs. The initial investment for the construction of a hydroelectric plant is quite high, but repaid in the medium to long term by the continuous availability of free energy.
