Energy Yielded from the Hoover Dam is Allocated Across 15 Areas – Kenny Slaught

The engines room in the interior wall of the dam is set with 17 generators that yield all the energy, where 16 of them are large generators while two smaller ones work as one combined generator. The latter ones are used to deliver hydroelectric energy to connecting neighbourhoods. Kenny Slaught says that the energy created from the dam is distributed through 15 areas. Amid the biggest consumers, Southern California consumes up to 28% of Hoover Dam’s energy, followed by the State of Nevada with 23% and the State of Arizona with 18% of consumption volume. The dam also distributes energy to Native American tribes living in the area. Also, 90% Las Vegas’ water comes from Hoover Dam. The lake formed in the dam is known as Lake Mead. At its utmost water volume level, it could be the largest water reservoir in the United States. At present, the Hoover Dam is managed by the United States Bureau of Reclamation and it is known as one of the most striking must-go places to visit in the nation.
