Connecting Hydropower Energy
Hydroelectric power, depending on rainfall, represents between 6 and 18 percent of California’s energy use, according to the California Energy Commission. As the demand for renewable energy production rises, owners and operators of California’s 287 hydro facilities will face additional operational and regulatory challenges in the coming years. Fortunately, the electrical engineers at SAGE have nearly 50 years of combined experience working with hydropower systems both large and small.
Exemplifying the electrical engineering and design experience required to support efficient hydro operations, our electrical engineers are proficient in hydroelectric power plant design and upgrades, protective relaying, unit control systems, field testing and startup engineering services, and NERC compliance for electrical system requirements.
SAGE specializes in water resources, hydropower, infrastructure, and asset management projects. We understand the engineering challenges unique to water agencies – particularly in the Sierra Nevada foothills.
