2 million metric tons) a year. S. government implemented new requirements for building and operating hydroelectric plants to reduce the impact of these facilities on the environment. Some older plants, however, continue to operate under the older, less ecologically sensitive system. Facts and Illustrations • About 30 percent of electric company charges in the Pacific Northwest today pay for the power manufacturer’s costs of following environmental regulations, such as limiting the impact of hydroelectric dams on wildlife and monitoring the water quality of reservoirs.

Certainly there is reason to believe that underdeveloped countries may be able to increase their hydroelectric production dramatically. As of 2010, for example, the combined capacity of all the hydropower plants in Africa is about 20,000 megawatts. In comparison, the capacity of China’s Three Gorges Dam, when complete, is expected to be 22,000 megawatts. Where hydropower production is concerned, the gap between Africa and much of the rest of the world is enormous. But Africa does not need to lag that far behind.

The other, known as Grand Inga, would be by far the largest hydroelectric facility not just on the continent, but in the world. If built according to current plans, it would generate 39,000 megawatts of electricity—much more even than the output of the Three Gorges Dam in China, currently the world’s largest. Drawbacks On the surface the notion of building these and other hydroelectric plants in the developing world seems reasonable. In theory, at least, a project like Grand Inga could provide enough electricity to bring a country such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo into the industrial age.
