Hydro

Part of Snowy Hydro’s electricity generation portfolio is the Snowy Mountains Scheme. The Snowy Mountains Scheme is an 3950 megawatt (MW) hydro electric power generation project located in Australia’s Southern Alps.

The Scheme on average produces around 4,500 gigawatt hours each year of clean renewable energy for the National Electricity Market. In doing so, the Scheme prevents around 4,500,000 tonnes of Carbon Dioxide being released each year. That’s the equivalent of the exhaust from around 1 million cars.

Snowy Hydro is constantly exploring ways to enhance the Scheme through the addition of mini hydros at Tumut 3, Jindabyne and Jounama and upgrades of the existing operating plant.
