Assessment of Regional Hydropower Potential

Client: El Dorado County Water Agency, California

WRE was part of a team led by EN2 Resources, Inc. that conducted a “Hydroelectric Development Options” study for the El Dorado County Water Agency. The team identified, evaluated, narrowed, and recommended the most promising options for:

  • Immediate implementation
  • Detailed feasibility evaluation
  • Future re-evaluation as the energy industry, market, and regulations evolve
Approximately 100 hydroelectric development options were initially identified throughout the county. WRE reviewed the physical characteristics and verified hydropower calculations for the “top 10” options.
