According to the California Energy Commission, the state has close to 400 hydroelectric plants, and in 2007, they created 14.5% of the total energy produced in the state. The amount of electricity that this equates to is 43,625 gigawatt-hours. Additionally, California imports hydroelectric energy from Washington and Oregon. In fact, after Washington, California is number two in the list of top-producing hydroelectricity states. Furthermore, Californian use of hydropower is quite a bit higher than that of the United States on a whole, which was only at 6% by 2010, per the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
