New Mexico hydro project upgrade completed with federal stimulus funds

New Mexico's Los Alamos County has installed a new turbine at its Abiquiu hydropower project on the Rio Chama River with federal stimulus funding, the Department of Energy reported.

County officials said the 3-MW turbine will increase the hydro plant's renewable energy generation capacity from 13.8 MW to 16.8 MW.

Officials said the project is the first major stimulus-funded hydropower project to reach completion. The project received a $4.5 million grant through the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act.
