How big of a hydroelectric dam does it have to be worth it?

    The hydroelectric plant can be of any size, depending on the needs and availability. Micro hydro produces up to 100 kW and is powered by small rivers or streams, and can provide power for an isolated home or a small community. Small hydro can power up a factory or a community and is under 1000 kW (1 MW). For comparison, the Hoover Dam produces over 2,000 MW, which is 20,000 times greater than the limit for the micro hydro power definition.
