Potomac and Shenandoah River Facilities

Luray - Powerhouse and Dam

PE Hydro is a portfolio of seven run-of-river operating hydroelectric assets with a total capacity of 10.6 MW located in West Virginia and Virginia on the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers. The projects, which began commercial operations between 1900 and 1966, are equipped with Francis, Propeller, and Kaplan turbines in a total of 21 units across the portfolio. PE Hydro produces a long term average generation of 42,515 MWh of clean electricity annually, which is enough to power 4,088 homes.

Notice: On October 28, 2020, the Millville Hydroelectric Project (FERC No. 2343) dam, located on the Shenandoah River near Harpers Ferry, West Virginia just upstream of the confluence with the Potomac River, will be temporarily dewatered to collect concrete core samples. This will disrupt the minimum flow of 200 cubic feet per second (cfs) to the Millville Project bypassed reach starting at about 8:30 a.m. on October 28. The sample collection will take up to 6 to 7 hours, and water would begin flowing over the Millville Dam about an hour after the work was completed.
