As Maine’s largest generator of renewable energy, Brookfield Renewable is a proud owner and operator of 11 hydro facilities within the Kennebec watershed. Its facilities, spanning from Rockwood to Waterville, have adapted over time to meet today’s safety standards and are a key component in stabilized river flows, climate resiliency, and renewable energy generation. Communities have long thrived around these dams, serving as a vital cultural, economic, and recreational resource for the people of the Kennebec region.
By providing hundreds of seasonal recreational flows that bring anglers, rafters, and private boaters to the upper Kennebec, Brookfield’s hydro facilities are integral to the region’s tourism and recreation economy. The Harris station averages more than 40,000 recreation-goers annually. Overall, Brookfield has more than 65 recreation areas within the Kennebec region, including boat launches, campsites, angling trails, and fishing areas.
We are proudly one of the region’s top taxpayers contributing $5.6 million within the Kennebec region. Over the next five years, we plan to invest nearly $50 million in capital improvements at our Kennebec facilities that include support from many local contractors and businesses.
