Is my power green?

In 2009, 91.2%
of Seattle's electricity was from hydroelectric sources, and in 2010, 87.9%
was hydro. Is the hydro capacity maxed out, or will it scale up to meet additional demand and maintain that ratio? Here's what I'm getting at: If I were to use more electricity than now, will that incremental power effectively come from non-renewable sources rather than ~90% hydro?
