URL More about Los Reyunos Pumped Hydro Storage
The Reyunos Dam is used to generate hydroelectricity. This is done in a power station located below the level of the reservoir. About one mile (two kilometer) downstream is a smaller, compensation dam called El Tigre. During the hours of decreased power demand, water is pumped from the reservoir of El Tigre back into Los Reyunos to stabilize the water level.
