Hydro facilities use the force of flowing water to create renewable energy. Green Power EMC gets energy from one low-impact hydroelectric facility at Tallassee Shoals near Athens, Ga. The flow of the Middle Oconee River turns turbines that produce electricity.
The site had a record year of production in 2013 due to unusually high rainfall — around 9,100 megawatt-hours and three times more than its average annual historical generation.
