Site Inventory and Hydropower Energy Assessment of Reclamation Owned Conduits (Final Report - March 2012)
Supplement to the "Hydropower Resource Assessment at Existing Reclamation Facilities" Report
The "Site Inventory and Hydropower Energy Assessment of Reclamation Owned Conduits" report builds off of the Hydropower Resource Assessment published in March 2011. This new report identifies potential hydropower sites on Reclamation owned conduits and determines those sites’ capacity and energy potential. In addition, this study identifies proximity to distribution or transmission lines, and provides site maps for the identified sites.
The report identifies 103,628 kW of potential capacity, and 365,218,846 kWh of potential annual generation on 373 Reclamation conduit sites located in 13 western states.
