Powerhouse in Wappingers Falls

Tucked away inside the Village of Wappingers Falls, a hydroelectric plant has been producing renewable energy for 30 years.

One of the few largely intact textile mills in the Hudson Valley still stands at Wappingers Falls. Much of the site remains in active use, though not for its intended purposes. One building however, still hums with running machinery alongside the Wappinger Creek.

POWER THROUGH HISTORY

Water. It’s the stuff that flows through our rivers, cleans our planet, and fuels us all. Often, it’s an underappreciated resource, or something that’s just there in the tap, waiting for us to turn on the faucet. Quite literally, it’s a drop in the bucket with the potential to change the world.

Woodstock agrees to buy hydro power from small producer

The Woodstock Town Board authorized a five-year contract with a hydroelectric producer for three of its accounts and will study the possibility of adding more.
