How Hydro power will Change the World
The Worlds Damaging Source and New Way Out
This hydro electric dam built along the Jinsha River in China that was announced finished in 2010 and is now used everyday for clean power.
This hydro electric dam in the United States was built along the Colorado River between the borders of Arizona and Nebraska. This massive station is used as a massive source of hydro electric power.

How it Works
The Percentages and Applications
The United States
The most common application of hydro power is at facilities/major dams. This is because in order to mass produce electric power using this method there has to be a massive amount of water in order to make it worth the time/money. This method could potentially be used at homes that are near rivers but homes far away will not be able to have this system.
