Rye Development is a leading developer of new low impact hydropowered energy generation and energy storage in the United States. Rye is committed to the responsible development of untapped hydropower resources while maintaining rivers’ balance of environmental and commercial requirements. Rye brings communities around the country substantial infrastructure, job creation, and a local source of renewable, non-consumptive energy.
To rapidly and substantially decarbonize the nation’s electricity system, Rye Development recognizes the role that U.S. hydropower plays as an important renewable energy resource. At the same time, our nation’s waterways, and the biodiversity and ecosystem services they sustain, are vulnerable to the compounding factors of a changing climate, habitat loss, and alteration of river processes. Our commitment is to facilitate hydropower’s role in a clean energy future in a way that also supports healthy rivers.
