1 Vermont Hydro Power Winooski

2 VT Water Power History Our water ways have been used for mechanical power since the earliest European settlers For sawmills, gristmills, cotton mills, carding mills, and producers of machine tools, scales, paper, and pulp

3 How much and from what? as late as 1940, 90 percent of Vermont's needs were met by stations operating solely on water power In % of our power was hydroelectric 10.8% was from utilities 18.7% was from non-utilties Today Vermont uses 1000 mw a day

5 Our Power VT power Production

6 Some VT Hydro Stations Comerford Station whose four large generators produce 164 megawatts of power

7 The Vernon station whose eight turbines produce 22 megawatts of electric power

8 The Bellows Falls station whose three generating units draw on water flowing through the historic 1791 canal and produce 49 megawatts of electric power

9 The Wilder station, consisting of a 2,900 ‑ feet long dam and three generators which produce 42 megawatts of power;

10 The Moore Station, the largest hydro-generating facility on the Connecticut River which encompasses a 3,490 ‑ acre storage reservoir and whose power output totals 192 megawatts

11 McIndoes Station whose 13 megawatts of power serve primarily to smooth the uneven water flows which result from the Comerford station’s operation

15 Government Model of Hydro Resources in VT There are 29 dams that produce power with a potential of 62.9 mw and modeled 31.8mw There are 70 dams without power with a potential of mw and modeled 131.1mw There are 50 undeveloped sites with a potential of 90.1 mw and modeled 11.7mw

16 Semi Current Events VT had a chance to buy 8 hydro dams in VT 2 on the Deerfield River and 6 on the Connecticut River Total of 527mw or 50% of our power
