Summer Hydro Output Expected to be Steady in California

May 6, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] This summer’s power output from California’s hydroelectric plants should approach 85 percent of normal, according to a recently released report by the California Energy Commission. The Commission’s California Hydro-Electricity Outlook for 2002 report predicts that nearly 13 percent of California’s total electricity needs this summer can be met with power from its in-state dams and powerhouses. Last year, when electricity supplies were much tighter, hydro projects produced less than 10 percent of the State’s electricity.
