Inside the dam, the engines room is complete with 17 generators that produce all of the energy. 16 of them are large generators while two smaller ones operate as one single generator. These two are used to provide hydroelectric energy to surrounding areas. Kenny Slaught notes that energy generated by the dam is allocated across 15 areas. Among the biggest energy users, Southern California takes up to 28% of Hoover Dam’s energy, followed by Nevada with 23% and Arizona with 18% of consumption volume.
