Energy generated by water is clean and reliable.
Two of the Cooperative’s hydroelectric facilities (Island Park & Buffalo) were the first certified low-impact hydropower projects in Idaho and our newest hydro facility, Chester, recently received its certification.
We know fishing on our area’s rivers and stream is important to our members and our economy. That is why Fall River invested in projects at our hydroelectric facilities to enhance our fisheries, while making the clean power you rely on.
Fall River Electric Cooperative in conjunction with 14 other Northwest electric cooperatives, as PNGC Power, also owns the Coffin Butte Landfill Gas Generation Project, located near Corvallis, Oregon. Coffin Butte generates clean, renewable green energy that comes from landfill gas – a natural by-product of the organic matter in the neighboring regional landfill. Fall River Electric receives renewable energy credits for 3 percent of the total power predictably produced at Coffin Butte, roughly 1.2 megawatts annually.
The Coffin Butte gas project is another example of Fall River Electric Cooperative’s commitment to innovative resources, responsible resource use, reliable service, and low cost energy for all our owner-members.
