River Run Hydro is an engineering and construction firm specializing in run of river hydroelectric development. Headquartered in Costa Rica, we specialize in commercial cogeneration hydroelectric development as well as independent and grid-tie solutions for residential, commercial, and industrial applications.
We provide detailed initial site assessments, downstream engineering, and for projects that are commercially viable offer a variety of capital investment options to enable land owners to develop property resources through investment that we bring to the table. For such property owners able to capitalize projects internally, we offer engineering, environmental permitting, utility contracting, construction and facility management services.
In Costa Rica, private power generation, whether for commercial resale to the grid or for independent or grid-tie use is economically favorable due in part to the high cost of power. But run-of-river style hydroelectric is also environmentally favorable owing to its carbon neutrality, and financially attractive because it does not require exorbitant sums to capitalize projects that can expect return on investment starting at ten percent.
The information in this web site is designed to provide interested parties with enough information to evaluate their own resources preliminarily to determine if a more in-depth resource evaluation is merited. We welcome the opportunity to provide property evaluations for those that wish to learn more about their resource potential and the viability of exploiting that potential.
