Energy Department Requests Feedback for Hydroelectric Facilities

Comments will be used to strategize the $630 million investment.

The Department of Energy (DOE) issued a Request for Information last week, asking for public feedback on how best to invest in hydropower facilities. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill allocated $630 million to improvements for hydropower facilities in the U.S., which currently creates 32% of the country’s renewable electricity generation and 6% of all electricity in the United States.

“Water is one of humankind’s oldest methods of generating energy, and with technological advancements, we can harness this renewable power as a core driver for the nation’s clean energy transition,” said Secretary Jennifer Granholm. Public comments can be submitted to the department until September 6.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Granholm as she seeks to implement clean energy programs.
  • For U.S. energy officials as they gather public input regarding hydroelectric investments.
