How much power do we currently get from hydro power in the united states?

    About 7.1% of all the power that is generated in the US come from hydroelectric power. Huge power generators are placed inside dams and the water flowing through the dams spin turbine blades which themselves are connected to generators. This is the way that power is produced and is sent to homes and other buildings.

    Hydro power is great, but is also has some downfalls. This includes destroying animals that travel through them. Also it may limit the water flow, change the watershed, and change the shape of the body of water. This can have detrimental effects on the environment.
