  Who Is American Governor?

American Governor is the world’s premier hydroelectric turbine controls company, offering consistently superior parts, service, training and technical support for legacy governors as well as complete custom-engineered digital conversion packages. American Governor personnel have over 600 years of combined governor experience and has provided parts, service, and training to over 1,500 power plants worldwide. The experience, integrity, responsiveness, and technical capability of our team explains why we have developed such a strong and loyal following in the hydro industry. We regularly do business with every major hydro owner in North America.

Our annual Governor School in June draws over 100 industry professionals seeking theoretical knowledge and practical training on everything from the oldest mechanical governor to the newest PLC digital governor. We are committed to keeping your governors – whether new or old – running reliably and efficiently and for as long as you wish to keep them in service.
