How a Hydroelectric Plant Works

south-carolina-hydroelectric-plant
  1. Water is held behind a dam creating a reservoir.
  2. When water is released through the dam, it passes through a turbine generator producing electricity.
  3. When energy demand is low, some of our plants pump water back into the reservoir to store the water for reuse when demand is high.
