Stevens Creek hydroelectric plant joins Hydro Hall of Fame

web posted August 26, 2014

COUNTY –  A new addition to the Hydro Hall of Fame is the Stevens Creek hydropower plant in Augusta, Ga area. The 100-year-old hydroelectric power facility was recognized for a century of excellence at this year’s HydroVision International closing awards luncheon and finale in Nashville, Tenn., earlier this month.

The Hydro Hall of Fame is a collection of 38 plants that have been in continuous operation for 100 years or more. These testaments to hydropower’s durability and long life have been chosen as inductees by the editors of Hydro Review every year since 1995, based on their age, performance history and unique characteristics.

The Stevens Creek hydroelectric plant has been in continual operation since its commissioning in February 1914. Located on the Savannah River, local media described Stevens Creek hydro as the greatest engineering feat in the region at the time it was commissioned. The installed capacity in 1914 was 11.8 MW, divided between five vertical units. Construction on this project was completed in two years with a workforce of more than 800 workers. Currently, the plant, which is owned by South Carolina Electric & Gas, generates an estimated 94 GW/h annually.
