There are two main types of hydropower companies: public and private. Public companies are owned by the government, while private companies are owned by investors.
Public companies provide a service for the government and are in return provided with a fixed amount of tax. Private companies do not provide any services for the government and are required to pay taxes on their profits. There is no limit on the size of private companies, so they have a lot more flexibility to invest in different areas of the business.
