The Kipawa Hydro Reservoir
This large Ottawa River reservoir, built by the Canadian government at the beginning of the last century, is already more than sufficient to add a full-time 70 MW power plant but it would significantly impact the environment. Developed by the Kipawa Reservoir community, this project would be by far the most profitable in Quebec at this time, and would provide a return on investment within just a few years.
The 132 MW Tabaret project will eliminate the aquatic ecosystem of the Kipawa River to replace and unused 17 MW Unit and a 5 MW plant.
There are other, smarter and more reasonable options for producing hydro power on the Kipawa watershed: the HUG Hydro System. There are two approaches: one uses kinetic energy of moving water of the rapids and the second use the energy of gravity from small waterfalls.
The HUG: the Greatest Potential
Kinetic hydro power is dam-less hydro power that is converted from energy found in the flowing water currents of rivers, oceans, tides and even ocean waves. The HUG is feasible, renewable and clean alternative for low cost power production.
Imagine two, three or twenty of these barges strung along a river one behind the other without environmental impact. Individual units come in a variety of sizes ranging as high as 2 MW, which can support 30,000 homes with electricity.
Hydro power costs less than most energy sources. The HUG has the lowest cost: $0.01/kWh.
