Generation Resource Development
Energy Northwest's experienced power generation resource development team constantly evaluates Northwest power markets, generation technologies and potential generation projects to provide public power member utilities conventional and renewable generation resources to meet current and future power needs.
The generation project development team at Energy Northwest has more than 80 years of combined experience in developing a wide-range of energy generation projects including natural gas, wind, solar and biomass.
With backgrounds in engineering, power management, commodity trading, permitting, fuels management and experience in negotiating complex integrated agreements, the project development team provides members advisory and technical support in dealing with the dynamics of the wholesale power industry.
The current focus of the team includes:
- Kalama Energy Center - A 346 megawatt combined cycle natural gas plant with fast start up, increased operational flexibility, and state-of-the-art performance and efficiency.
- Radar Ridge Wind Project - A 40 to 80 megawatt winter-peaking production resource located near major load centers west of the Cascade Range.
- Christmas Valley Solar Project - A 4.99 megawatt utility-scale photovoltaic, single-axis tracking located in south central Oregon. The project qualifies for 2.2 renewable energy credits through regional distributed generation and apprentice program applications.
- Grays Harbor power option - A 50 megawatt monthly call option on a regional 600 megawatt natural gas-fueled combined cycle power plant
- Wood biomass feasibility project - Evaluating use of both conventional and gasification technologies to biomass-fueled distributed generation applications in the Northwest
