Yuba Water Agency’s hydropower facilities provide important electric grid stabilization in Northern California.
Hydropower is one of the most available and sustainable energy sources in the nation, and uses water from rivers and streams. Additionally, it is one of the most cost-effective energy sources.
Yuba Water Agency owns and operates three separate powerhouses on the Yuba River: New Colgate Powerhouse, Narrows 2 Powerhouse, and the New Bullards Bar minimum instream flow powerhouse.
Public information about the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission relicensing process for Narrows hydroelectric power generation facility.
One of Yuba Water Agency’s primary functions and a tremendous benefit is its generation of clean, renewable hydropower. These operations provide a source of renewable electricity.
