As the East Kimberley region grew, so did the demand for electricity.

In 1996, Ord Hydro Pty Ltd constructed a 30 megawatt hydro-power station providing a clean and renewable energy source. The station is located at the base of the Ord River Dam.

The power station was designed to utilise four turbines and two 15 megawatt generators to give a station output of 30 MW This produces more that 220 gigawatt hours of electricity per annum.

Ord Hydro now supplies renewable energy to the Argyle Village, Wyndham, Kununurra and the Argyle Diamond mine.

The installation of this hydroelectricity power station has reduced the consumption of diesel fuel in the East Kimberley by about 60 million litres per year.
