Hydropower-By Tyla.

Hydroelectricity has been a part of New Zealand for nearly 100 years!
In New Zealand our hydropower sources are powered by dams over rivers. There are sometimes protests against making more dams in NZ because we don’t want to ruin our natural environment. Hydroelectricity supplied around 20% of the world's  electricity in 2006.

The more water there is, the faster a turbine spins and it can make more electricity. Hydropower is the largest source of energy used in New Zealand.
