Caption: Hydroelectric power. Diagram showing the principles behind hydroelectric power. A dam is built across a river valley to hold back a large head of water. Large pipes through the dam, called penstocks, allow the water to rush past large turbines that turn to generate electricity. The water then exits the dam and continues down river.
