Located along the biologically-rich Clyde River of northern VT, the Newport hydro project has been powering the region since the 1930s. Today, the facility consists of a dam, penstock, upstream and downstream fish passage, and a powerhouse containing three hydroelectric generating units. A 150-kilowatt solar photovoltaic system is co-located at the station.
