A safe, reliable, and environmental sound way to meet clean energy needs, grow Oregon’s economy, and create thousands of new jobs.
Oregon and the Pacific Northwest is moving towards 100% clean energy, looking to the wind, water, and sun to power homes and businesses. Completing that successful transition depends on ensuring the stability and resiliency of the electrical grid to supply communities, even during periods of peak demand.
Moving away from fossil fuels requires better ways to fill the gaps in the day when renewable energy production is inconsistent. Pumped storage helps provide the answer, using a clean, safe, and proven technology to meet the region’s energy needs. The Swan Lake Energy Storage Project will create thousands of new jobs as the region prepares for a clean energy future.
What does Pumped Storage mean for Oregon and the Region?
Transitioning to fully clean energy supply requires the ability to store energy for when it is most needed. The Swan Lake Energy Storage Project will meet that need, creating good jobs and boosting Oregon’s economy.Learn More
