Federal Hydropower Summit
In 2016, the power marketing administrations (BPA, Southeastern Power Administration, Southwestern Power Administration and Western Power Administration), USACE and Reclamation formed the Federal Hydropower Summit – a collaborative effort to explore opportunities to retain and improve the federal hydropower system across the country. Together, these agencies deliver more than 44 percent of the nation’s hydropower via 133 federal hydropower facilities and 34,000 miles of federal high-voltage transmission lines. The energy generated and delivered serves more than 60 million homes and businesses, or approximately 150 million people, in 33 states. This ongoing effort will look for improvements that ensure reliable hydropower continues to be delivered at the best value for the nation.
