Pollution Prevention

Energy Northwest maintains a pollution prevention program to reduce the use of hazardous materials and the generation of wastes. Our pollution prevention program addresses energy efficiency and conservation, water efficiency and conservation, waste minimization, spill prevention, and chemical management.
 
Key program activities include developing an environmental excellence plan for the environmental stewardship objectives and targets, increasing employee awareness and communication of environmental management system and pollution prevention activities, and providing technical assistance on new pollution prevention related initiatives.
 
In addition to integrating environmental protection measures into our operations, we are committed to developing cost-effective renewable energy. Renewable energy projects include:
• Packwood Lake Hydroelectric Project
• Nine Canyon Wind Project
• White Bluffs Solar Station
