Focus: The New England Hydropower Company, LLC (NEHC) develops, operates and manages small-scale regional and local hydroelectric facilities. It is an innovative approach that reflects the idea that sustainable, renewable energy is important to strong economies and healthy environments. NEHC has identified small-scale hydropower as a critical facet of a mix of diverse energy sources. Leveraging its expertise in hydro-generation it is developing a regional program of non-invasive--fish and wildlife friendly--electric generation.
Michael C. Kerr— Co-Founder, Chief Operating Officer—As Managing Principal, Michael’s leadership has guided NEHC through its founding. Michael has leveraged his experience with venture-backed technology companies for the clean tech, software and industrial product markets to develop NEHC’s model.
