In the United States, Brookfield owns and operates 143 generation facilities, totaling over 3,400 megawatts of capacity. The company’s hydropower portfolio generates enough renewable energy to power over 800,000 average U.S. households annually. With holdings in ten states, Brookfield is a recognized leader in the development and operation of high quality, clean power facilities in the US.
In 2008, Brookfield established a U.S. Operations office and state-of-the-art national control center in Marlborough, Massachusetts to manage its growing asset base. The U.S. National System Control Center monitors and dispatches U.S. generation assets through a sophisticated, centralized center which adheres to national security and reliability standards and is staffed 24/7. Brookfield facilities also have local staff that monitor conditions and promptly respond to operating and maintenance needs.
Brookfield continues to grow in the U.S. through the acquisition of new generating facilities, greenfield development and the enhancement of our existing operations.
Brookfield is a leader in environmental stewardship with more hydropower facilities certified by the independent Low Impact Hydropower Institute
than any other U.S. hydropower operator.
