Hecla’s Responsible Actions

Renewable Energy Helps Reduce our Carbon Footprint

Hecla uses renewable energy sources whenever possible to further reduce our environmental impact. Our Lucky Friday Mine in Idaho gets power from a local electric company that includes hydropower, and at Greens Creek Mine in Alaska, we purchase excess hydroelectric power from the local electric company when it is available.

Using hydropower helps us reduce costs, minimizes our fossil fuel use, and decreases our emissions. Since 2006, using hydropower has helped us reduce our diesel fuel consumption at Greens Creek by 60%.
