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. An alternate operational scenario based on moderate industrial growth flow rates was also investigated., "November, 2009.", This archived document is maintained by the State Library of Oregon as part of the Oregon Documents Depository Program.
