Pownal Tannery Hydroelectric Plant
The Pownal Tannery Hydroelectric Plant is one more step toward reclaiming Vermont's energy future and independence. This reuse of our existing infrastructure not only harnesses a local renewable energy source reducing our reliance on fossil fuels and foreign power supply, but at the same time provides revenue to the Town of Pownal, creates jobs and cleans toxins from the river. All this is accomplished by harnessing the power of gravity with one of Vermont's oldest technologies.
