Yesterday Missouri River Energy Services (MRES) celebrated the beginning of
hydropower generation at the Red Rock Hydroelectric Project (RRHP) with a video dedication ceremony that's available on MRES’s website and social media channels.
Built on the Lake Red Rock dam near Pella, Iowa and now Iowa’s second-largest hydropower generator, the retrofitted dam will harness the power of the
Des Moines River to produce clean and renewable electricity for thousands of homes in MRES member communities across Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota.
MRES was joined by several speakers for the video dedication ceremony, a few among many were:
Iowa Lieutenant Governor Adam Gregg
U.S. Senator Joni Ernst
U.S. Representative David Loebsack
