Mario Finis, Senior Vice President of WaterPower & Dams, focuses on the need for a balanced renewable energy and argues the case for hydropower with Colorado Biz.
Policymakers and the environmental community are looking to hydropower to meet our nation’s energy and environmental challenges by maximizing the public benefit of existing water infrastructure. Last year a bill, co-sponsored by Colorado’s own U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette seeking to expedite licensing for developing hydropower on the nation’s non-powered dams unanimously passed signed into law. The bill was supported not only by the hydropower industry, but also American Rivers, the nation’s leading conservation organization, dedicated to protecting and restoring America’s rivers.
