Ensuring Affordable, Steady Electricity with Zero Carbon Emissions

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?

A safe, reliable, and environmentally sound way to store renewable energy – deploying it when it is needed most.

Investing over $800 million in Southern Oregon to create thousands of family-wage jobs during a 3 to 5-year construction timeline.

Generating carbon-free hydroelectricity without new dams on rivers—a strategy environmental groups and energy companies can both get behind.

Ensuring the lights stay on and rates remain affordable for Oregonians as the transition to a carbon-free electricity grid continues.
