Initially used centuries ago in ancient Greece to turn water wheels to grind wheat into flower, hydropower today maximizes the use of water to generate electricity with minimal environmental impact. In the United States, 10% of electricity supplied to homes comes from hydroelectric sources.
Water is the leading renewable energy sourced used by utility companies. Hydroelectricity is a cheap power source that requires no fuel combustion, helping to offset the creation of greenhouse emissions by fossil-fuel power sources.
