What are the benefits of water generated power?
Hydropower is cheap,non-polluting,and many small facilities are considered renewable energy sources. Dams and reservoirs also provide recreational opportunities ,flood control,irrigation,refuges for wildlife, water supply and transportation.
Water flowing through a turbine which is connected to an electric generator converts the water power to electrical energy. Electrical energy generated this way is known as hydroelecticity to differentiate it from electrical energy generated by other means, such as wind power, solar power, fossil fuels or nuclear fuels.
