CAES Could Benefit 85,000 Homes In Washington, Oregon
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and Bonneville Power Administration suggest that up to 85,000 homes in Washington and Oregon could benefit from CAES.
So far, two suitable locations have been identified in the two states: Columbia Hills Site in Oregon, and Yakima Minerals Site.
In the Northwest, wind already accounts for 13 percent of power supply, and CAES could play a huge role in helping to meet the Renewable Portfolio Standards, which mandate for 20-30 percent renewables.
