Apparently, electricity can be moved quite a distance. Oregon sells clean electricity to California and that travels quite a distance. But still, close means less miles of expensive power lines.
It's Chile's business and not mine, but I live in a state with lots of hydro dams, and I don't see the problem. They make very nice lakes. Water comes in the top and goes out the downhill side, so the rivers are still running. The power lines make useful fire breaks (or are there never any forest fires in Chile?). Wildlife makes good use of the cleared area to graze. Electrical road maintenance roads are invaluable for fire fighting.
I'd rather see hydropower than coal fired or gas fired generating plants.
I don't have anything against modern nuclear power plants, but I'd rather see hydropower.
Solar is still not sufficiently developed and it is very expensive. Wind power is rather expensive and it kills both birds and fish. Tidal power looks promising, but still developmental. Hydropower is clean, safe, and not dangerous to wildlife, as long as adequate fish ladders are installed.

Now they have to go south for big water.
As pointed out what fish do Wind Turbines kill???? The new slow RPM ones don't kill birds.
