  • 10:00-11:00 AM and

  • 5:30-6:30 PM

The Redwood Coast Energy Authority invites the public to a free online presentation by RCEA consultant Michael Furniss about the potential of small-scale, run-of-the-river hydroelectric power for the North Coast.

Two sessions will be offered on Tuesday, December 7, the first at 10-11 a.m. with a repeat at 5:30 p.m. Both one-hour webinars will include time afterward for attendees to ask questions.

RCEA is launching a regional effort to facilitate the development of small hydroelectric projects “done right”, and we are ready to discuss any questions you may have, such as:

  • Why is hydropower needed when solar is now so widely available and inexpensive?
  • How will fish be protected if you are diverting water from streams to make electricity?
  • Won’t development of watersheds cause impacts to water and ecosystem?
  • What are the Best Practices for hydropower development?
  • For systems that cannot be feasibly connected to the grid, how will this project help?
  • How will landowners and investors be incentivized to develop small hydropower?
  • Why hasn’t more hydropower been developed so far?
  • What does RCEA expect to get from this effort?
  • How does small hydro fit into RCEA’s power portfolio?
