A method and apparatus for generating hydroelectric power from a water source by lifting water from a relatively lower position to a second relatively raised position. The water is moved in a generally upward direction stepwise from a lowermost tier to an uppermost tier in a plurality of stacked tiers. The water from the water source is initially upwardly siphoned to the lowermost tier. The water from the lower tier is then upwardly siphoned to a next adjacent higher tier. The water from the uppermost tier is channeled down to turn a turbine driven generator to produce electrical power.
