Tomorrow, Aug. 24, is the third annual National Hydropower Day in the U.S., declared by the National Hydropower Association (NHA).

NHA said the day is “a way to collectively recognize hydropower’s undeniable contributions to bolstering the nation’s clean energy infrastructure and providing grid resiliency and reliability benefits.”

As in previous years, NHA is encouraging industry engagement on social media, asking for posts with the hashtag #HydroDay. NHA has developed a Communications Toolkit that includes sample social media posts and a hydropower messaging guide. In addition to being active on social media, NHA encourages sending a press release to local reporters, tv and radio outlets; submitting a letter to the editor to your local newspaper; or organizing a media availability with local media to showcase your hydropower facility.

Additionally, NHA’s Malcolm Woolf is interviewing U.S. Department of Energy Deputy Secretary David Turk on hydropower’s role in the country’s clean energy future. The interview takes place Aug. 24 at 1:30 pm ET.
