Boulder, CO – Gravity Renewables, Inc. owns and operates 18 hydroelectric power projects in seven states. Our operations are impacted by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the following ways:
Critical Infrastructure – Dams and electric power generation are classified as critical infrastructure by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. As such, Gravity has measures in place to ensure that employees and contractors can access, operate and maintain all its generation facilities on a 24/7 basis if needed. Our staff with operating responsibilities and experience have been designated as Essential Personnel and are available to ensure business continuity.
Recreational Facilities – Effective immediately, Gravity Renewables temporarily closed public recreation facilities at all its hydroelectric generation facilities. The closures are in response to federal, state and local recommendations to minimize exposure to COVID-19 and to protect Gravity employees, contractors and the general public. Closures will stay in effect until Gravity Renewables determines that they can be safely reopened, based on directives and recommendations from state and local officials.
The Gravity Renewables team is committed to the continued operations of our business while simultaneously ensuring the safety and health of our employees, contractors, neighbors and the general public. We continue to closely monitor the situation and adjust as necessary.
