Local Green Power Since 1909
Since 1909, Wappingers Falls Hydroelectric has harnessed the power of the falling water to provide electricity to the surrounding area. Personally we have owned and oeprated this site and three others for over 30 years. We sold our power direct to Central Hudson and now we have the opportunity to sell direct to customer.
This power is pollution free and renewable, this original form of power production remains the most cost effective means for providing a cleaner environment. The aerial photo shows Wappingers Creek gorge, penstock (pipe), wheelhouse, and mill complex. Learn more about the process here. Below photo from 1908 as they started building the bridge and the tunnel for the pipe.
