Connecticut House passes Collinsville Dams legislation for new power source

Jun 27th, 2012 | By | Category: Energy

On June 26, U.S. House of Representatives approved legislation authored by Congressman Chris Murphy (CT-05) to help generate clean power on the Farmington River. Murphy’s legislation, the Collinsville Renewable Energy Act, will permit the towns of Canton, Avon, and Burlington to operate two currently-inactive hydropower dams and generate locally-produced power. The dams are expected to produce nearly two megawatts of power, enough to power more than 1,500 homes.
