Small hydropower refers to the small-scale production of hydroelectric power for mini-industry plants or a local community. It relies on rivers or streams to rotate turbines that are connected to a generator to produce electricity. It is a compact system that does not require vast land to install the plants. It can be maintained without negatively impacting the ecosystem and wildlife as a small hydropower plant is constructed on existing water infrastructure. It is a sustainable source of energy producing minimum air or water pollution.

It does not cause irreversible damage, such as methane emissions, sedimentation, deforestation, displacement of water, and water wastage, as small hydropower does not require large reservoirs. Small hydropower is highly flexible and can run from zero power to maximum output and generate power to the grid spontaneously. It is capable of providing backup power during massive electricity outages and disruptions. It is affordable and provides durability compared to other sources of energy. It also provides clean drinking water, controls floods, and maintains a steady irrigation system. As it is versatile, cost-effective, and a renewable source of energy, small hydropower is extensively utilized by homegrown businesses, farmers, and ranchers across the globe.
