Hydro projects like this one generate electricity from flowing water and reduce dependency on burning fossil fuels to generate power. The benefits of this project are far reaching, and include: preserving natural resources; promoting renewable energy generation; reducing dependency on non-renewable resources; helping spread green technology worldwide; and improving health.
Pacific Hydro’s corporate community plan engages with localities during construction and operation of the hydro power stations in the region. Local communities also benefit from the sustainable communities’ fund Creciendo Juntos (Growing Together), which aims to improve the population’s quality of life. Since its creation, Creciendo Juntos has delivered more than one million dollars to the communities of the Alto Cachapoal Valley.
