Renewable Power Opportunities
Smith Creek Idaho is a name-plated 39MW run of the river hydro project with a connection to the grid via a 115kW transmission line, 30 miles of transmission line and towers wholly owned, connecting to Bonneville Power (BPA).
●Project includes a 12 foot-high, 95 foot wide diversion dam with 3 sluice gates, trash rack, and fish ladder at elevation 3,440 feet msl. An intake structure connects to an approximately 27,400 foot-long buried steel penstock that necks from 72-inches down to 57-inches in diameter.
●Project includes approximately 2200 acres of forest land and about 10 miles of river frontage and riparian corridor.
●Location begins approximately six miles west of Mt. Rainier National Park. Water is diverted from the river along a 10.2 mile wooden flume (topped with a railroad) to a forebay, then plunges 875 feet downhill through steel penstocks to the 26 MW Powerhouse. The Project produces enough renewable energy to power more than 20,000 homes.
