The use of water in the generation of electricity at plants where the turbine generators are driven by falling water. Hydroelectric power is required for water use in some areas and works by flowing water through generators where power and energy is produced and delivered to households and businesses. Hydroelectric power is the most commonly used resource for renewable energy. While hydropower has been utilized for many centuries, specifically to generate power for industrial equipment and spinning mill wheels, it is currently used in conjunction with electrical generation.
