Hydroelectric, Deer Island - Since 2002, energy is recovered at Deer Island by the flow of treated wastewater as it drops from the plant into the outfall tunnel shaft through two one-megawatt hydroelectric generators that produce over 5 million kW hours per year and provide an annual savings in electrical costs of $600,000.
