West River Hydro Facilities

Eagle Creek has constructed new hydroelectric generating facilities on two United States Army Corps of Engineers flood control dams on the West River in southern Vermont. These two facilities, a 2,200-kilowatt plant on the Ball Mountain Dam in Jamaica, VT and a 900-kilowatt plant on the Townshend Dam in Townshend, VT, were built in 2016.  Both facilities have long-term contracts through Vermont Sustainably Priced Energy Development (SPEED) program and will deliver energy to the utilities in the state of Vermont, helping those utilities meet their renewable energy requirements under Vermont's new Renewable Energy Standard. Together, the two projects will produce over 10 million kilowatt-hours of clean, renewable electricity per year.
