Hydro-electric feasibility study at Upper Pony Creek Reservoir
A technical, fiscal, and permitting feasibility study has been conducted for the Coos Bay North Bend Water Board pertaining to the development of hydroelectric facilities at the Upper Pony Creek Reservoir. A net-metering design for onsite use of the generated power model was selected based on projected power generation rates. The pro-forma for the project developed to reflect the preliminary build-out design, historical electricity inflation rates, and currently available tax credits and utility incentives projects a return on investment of greater than 15 years.
