Goldendale Energy Storage Project - Draft Environmental Impact Statement
The Department of Ecology (Ecology) invites you to comment on the draft environmental impact statement (EIS) for the proposed Goldendale Energy Storage Project.
Proposed project Free Flow Power (FFP) Project 101, LLC is proposing to develop the Goldendale Energy Storage Project - a hydropower water storage system that releases water from an upper reservoir downhill to a lower reservoir to create renewable energy. The project is expected to generate up to 1,200 megawatts of electricity. It would send electricity to the grid through the existing infrastructure of the nearby John Day Substation, in Oregon.
Environmental review Ecology studied the possible significant and adverse impacts resulting from the construction and operation of the project, and summarized findings in a draft environmental impact statement (EIS). The review looked at impacts to the natural environment, nearby communities and cultural resources through study of air quality, plant and animal habitat, transportation, water resources, water quality, and Tribal and cultural resources.
The EIS is not a decision and does not determine whether the project moves forward. It is used as support when decisions are made on permits that would be needed to build and operate the project.
All fields are optional unless otherwise indicated.
