Climate change is affecting hydropower in different ways across the country.
Regulators plan to release an extra 500,000 acre-feet of water from the Flaming Gorge Reservoir to prevent Lake Powell from becoming so depleted that it stops generating hydropower.
Wyoming's biggest utility applied in October for preliminary permits to study the feasibility of two hydroelectric projects along the North Platte River. They could be among Rocky Mountain Power's first pumped storage facilities.
Pumped storage has emerged as a possible answer to the inherent variability of wind and solar.
Powell’s surface elevation dipped to 3,555.09, lower by 12 hundredths of an inch than the previous post-completion nadir of April 8, 2005. The new benchmark is “probably worth noting,” Wayne Pullan, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation’s Region 7 director, said in a press call Wednesday.
Water levels in Lake Powell and Lake Mead are expected to plummet low enough for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation to declare an official shortage for the first time.
