Hydro Tasmania electricity generation
Hydro Tasmania (Hydro) specialises in power generation and does not retail electricity. Initially formed in 1914 by the State Government of Tasmania, Hydro opened its first hydroelectric dam the same year. Since then, it has continued to add to its portfolio of renewable power stations.
Hydro claims to be the largest producer of renewable energy in Australia. It offers clean energy solutions to support Tasmania's energy demand through its network of more than 50 major dams, 30 power stations and two wind farms.
You can't buy energy from Hydro directly. The company does sell electricity through its retail branch Momentum Energy. However, Momentum doesn't offer power in Tasmania and only serves customers in South Australia, Victoria, NSW and South East Queensland.
Hydro also owns an energy consulting firm called Entura.

Hydro renewable energy
Hydro Tasmania aims to replace Australia's reliance on fossil fuels with renewable resources and generates most of its electricity from hydropower and wind turbines.
Both hydro and wind power work by using generators powered by water or wind. Because the water and wind never run out, the generators can run indefinitely and won't deplete any resources.
The company also helps isolated communities reduce their dependence on diesel by providing them with clean energy sources such as wind and solar.
