Goldendale Energy Storage Project Draft Environmental Impact Statement

We invite you to review and comment on an environmental review of Free Flow Power Project 101, LLC's proposed hydropower project near the Columbia River, south of Goldendale. This water storage system would release water from an upper reservoir downhill to a lower reservoir to generate energy. The power produced would be provided to the electrical grid at the nearby John Day Substation in Oregon when other renewable sources, like wind and solar, are unavailable.
