Black Bear Hydro

The Black Bear assets, purchased by Brookfield Renewable in November 2013, are located in Maine, on the Union, Penobscot and Androscoggin rivers, and all benefit from FERC licenses. These assets produce enough clean, renewable energy to power an average of 35,000 homes annually in the New England region, where the electricity is primarily sold.

All published flows are approximate and may differ from the above readings for reasons beyond the company's control including energy demand, operating conditions, equipment failures and weather conditions and potentially significant runoff from uncontrolled parts of the watershed. Please be aware of local warnings, be alert, wear an approved flotation device, and use extreme caution near the river.

Do not go in or near the water until you know and accept the risks you are assuming by being in these areas.

Please be advised that Brookfield Renewable has deployed a new mobile friendly website for all water data pertaining to their assets. Users should visit and bookmark for all future data needs. Please be safe on the water!
