Niagara Power Project

From Klara and Karina:

As some of you know we started our visit here in the States by going on a Road Trip to Niagara Falls. And when there we also visited the Niagara Falls Power Plant. It was a very interesting visit in relation to Waterways.

From the Niagara Falls Power Plant website:

You know it as one of the great natural wonders of the world. But did you know that the power behind Niagara Falls also helps generate some of the least expensive electricity anywhere?

The United States and Canada have shared the Niagara River’s water power—along with a commitment to preserve the beauty of the Falls—for nearly half a century.  And our Niagara Power Project will continue to produce steady supplies of clean, carbon-free hydroelectricity for another 50 years with a new federal license which took effect September 1, 2007.

Check out the link below for more information about the plant and the whole power projekt:
