View all projects


This 70.2 mega-watt (MW) hydroelectric plant is located on the Ohio River near Franklin Furnace, Ohio. Greenup generates approximately 282 million kilo-watt hours (kWh) annually and was placed into commercial operation in May 1982. Beginning with the commercial operation of Meldahl in April 2016, Hamilton sold 48.6% of Greenup to American Municipal Power (AMP). Under the Meldahl/Greenup agreement, Hamilton operates both facilities. Greenup continues to be a key component of the City's green energy portfolio.
