Check out this brown bag discussion on hydropower in Alabama, featuring Sarah Stokes, Senior Attorney with Southern Environmental Law Center, and Colleen McNally-Murphy, Associate National Director of the Hydropower Reform Coalition.
Learn more about the recent successes on the Coosa River and what’s next for the relicensing of the seven hydro dams spanning 275 river miles, as well as current relicensing efforts for Harris Dam on the Tallapoosa. The discussion also provides an overview of hydropower impacts, how the HRC works, what FERC licensing is, how to get involved, and what the role of hydro should be in a clean energy future.
