The Auglaize Hydroelectric Plant
The Auglaize Hydroelectric Plant is located on the Auglaize River in Defiance. The original was built in 1912 until it was shut down in 1962. The plant sat vacant until the 1980s when it was bought by the Power Dam Corporation. It was later purchased again by the city of Bryan.
The plant has several benefits that include helping the environment by replacing fossil fuel power plants, generating income, and increasing power-generating capability.
