VPPSA Members own and operate the following small hydroelectric facilities:
|Enosburg Falls Village Plant #1||600kW|
|Enosburg Falls Kendall Plant||375kW|
|Hardwick Wolcott Hydro||815kW|
|Lyndonville Great Falls & Vail Hydro||2,400kW|

|Morrisville Cady’s Falls Hydro||1,400kW|
|Morrisville Plant #2 Hydro||1,800kW|
|Swanton Orman Croft Hydro||11,392kW|
All of these facilities, except Swanton’s Orman Croft plant, are operated by the Member municipality to meet local needs while reducing capacity and transmission charges. As a larger facility, Swanton’s Orman Croft plant participates in the regional markets and is operated under instruction from ISO New England. All of the facilities, often established over 100 years ago, represent a centerpiece of the owning municipal electric department’s supply portfolio and a key resource in meeting their individual renewable energy goals.
VPPSA helps our Members maximize the value of these facilities by providing guidance on the most valuable times to operate and assisting with state and federal regulatory requirements.
