Canadian Hydro was founded by two brothers John and Ross Keating with Jack McCleary. In 1989 Canadian Hydro had secured $1.3 million in equity and a contract with TransAlta to build three small run-of-river facilities. Revenue from these plants were then used in part to finance the future plants.
In January 2005 the firm bought Canadian Renewable Energy Corporation (CREC).
Announced in February 2007 (and finalized in March) the firm bought GW Power Corporation.
In December 2009 TransAlta acquired Canadian Hydro Developers at $5.25 cash per share.
All facilities are owned by Canadian Hydro Developers.
