how are we different?
water & energy
We improve water management practices that result in less waste and more reserve capacity, allowing for more electricity to be generated during peak demand hours. We create more water for farming without impacting migratory fish runs, and offset power lost due to environmental river flow requirements.
We believe clean energy and sustainable water practices go hand and hand.
Our systems assist native fish to pass over dams in seconds, rather than days. This means fish experience less stress and are able to reach cool water and their spawning grounds sooner. Our FishL Recognition system ensures selective fish passage, capable of culling out non-native species that wreak havoc on the local habitat and increase predation on native species. We've even taken into account the realities of our changing climate with a system that adapts to changing water levels.
Our systems cost 80% less than other fish passage options. The system is modular, adaptable, and portable - minimizing costly civil work. We also use remote monitoring, significantly lowering annual maintenance and operating costs. To eliminate budget barriers, Whooshh offers project financing at many sites for the Whooshh Passage Portal, including installation.
Why? Because the fish and our planet have no time to lose.
