Specializing In Energy Storage + Run-of-River Projects

Swan Lake

Energy Storage

The Swan Lake Energy Storage Project will provide 400 megawatts (MW) of on-demand renewable energy to serve communities across Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. Located in Klamath County, the $800 million+ project leverages its proximity to critical north-south electric transmission access, ultimately storing the region’s abundant wind and solar electricity to use when it is needed. Once operational, the project will avoid/save the equivalent of 595,063 tons of CO2 emissions each year.

Goldendale

Energy Storage

The Goldendale Energy Storage Project is an early-stage development strategically located on the Oregon-Washington border. The project is positioned at the top of the Pacific AC and DC Interties that connect the Pacific Northwest's power grid. The $2 Billion+ project is a closed-loop pumped-storage hydropower facility with an upper and lower reservoir located about eight miles southeast of Goldendale, Washington. It will generate 1,200 megawatts of clean electricity while also storing the region’s abundant wind and solar electricity to use when it is needed. Once operational, the project will avoid/save the equivalent of 1,785,190 tons of CO2 emissions each year. Developed by Rye Development and owned by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, the project will create more than 3,000 family wage jobs during its four-year construction period, and another 50 to 70 much-needed permanent jobs.

Lewis Ridge

Energy Storage

The Lewis Ridge energy storage project is located adjacent to the Cumberland River near the communities of Blackmont, Tejay, Balkan and Callaway, Kentucky. The project site sits on a former coal strip mine in an active coal mining area. As coal is phased out of the grid across the nation, coal communities face uncertain employment and economic futures. Projects like Lewis Ridge create new jobs and economic activity in energy communities.

The existing project site is unique and features beneficial topography and proximity to transmission infrastructure. These features allow Lewis Ridge to bring a significant amount of economic development benefit to adjacent communities while also preserving ratepayer reliability and affordability.

Pennsylvania & West Virginia

Run-of-River

Southwestern Pennsylvania is uniquely positioned to play a critical role in the clean energy transition – leveraging its historic infrastructure and the harnessing the power of its abundant waterways to lead in the development of low impact, renewable, hydro power.

Nearly a decade of Federal and State permitting and development are culminating in the construction of these three projects – breaking ground in early 2023
