Eagle Creek constructs new hydroelectric projects where there is a significant unused resource, demand for clean power production is high, and a project can be built responsibly and in consideration of the environment and the project's neighbors.
Eagle Creek is currently planning the construction of a new powerhouse with a new turbine-generator unit at its Swinging Bridge facility in New York. Similar to the unit added at the downstream Rio facility in 2013, this will be a mininum flow unit at the base of the dam, making use of water that is already released at the same location. The current minimum flow releases do not pass through a turbine and generate no power; the new unit will result in nearly 5 million kilowatt-hours of clean, renewable electricity generation per year without altering river flows or reservoir operations.
Eagle Creek is also planning the construction of a similar minimum flow unit at its Pepperell facility in Massachusetts.
In addition to these new construction projects, Eagle Creek is rehabilitating the Reusens facility in Virginia. Eagle Creek acquired the facility from AEP in April 2017. It had not operated since 2011. Eagle Creek plans to restore four 2.5-megawatt turbine-generator units at Reusens to produce nearly 40 million kilowatt-hours per year of clean, renewable electricity.
Eagle Creek recently completed construction of two new power stations at the Ball Mountain and Townshend Dams on the West River in Vermont. These dams were built in the 1960s by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for flood control. The new projects will add 3,100 kilowatts of capacity and over 10 million kilowatt-hours of annual production to Eagle Creek's portfolio of hydroelectric power plants.
Eagle Creek recently completed a new powerhouse at the Rio Dam in New York to generate electricity from the water that bypassed the existing Rio power station. The project added 800 kilowatts of capacity and 5.4 million kilowatt-hours of clean energy production to the output of the Rio project.
