List of run-of-the-river hydroelectric power stations

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The following page lists the hydroelectric power stations that generate power using the run-of-the-river method. This list includes most power stations that are larger than 100 MW in maximum net capacity, which are currently operational or under construction. Those power stations that are smaller than 100 MW, and those that are only at a planning/proposal stage may be found in regional lists, listed at the end of the page.

Hydroelectric power stations[edit]

This table lists currently operational power stations. Some of these may have additional units under construction, but only current net capacity is listed.
