Who discovered hydroelectricity?

    Michael Faraday first designed the homopolar generator, now commonly called a dynamo, to harness the power of water in 1831. But his idea wasn’t practicable until at least thirty years later. The first turbine to use water was designed in the 1860s by an American engineer, Lester Pelton. But the first hydroelectric power station was built in 1882, and only produced enough power to power 250 light bulbs.
