Energy Sources

Hydro
Hydro-electric power projects including Federally owned projects, the Jordanelle Project, and hydropower plants owned by HL&P make up a large portion of HL&P's energy portfolio.
HL&P owns three small run-of-the-river hydropower plants located in Snake Creek and Lake Creek.

Generation at the Upper Snake Creek Plant commenced in 1949 and continues to operate much the same as it did when it was built. The output of the plant ranges from 750 kilowatts in the summer to 250 kilowatts in the winter.

The Lower Snake Creek Hydropower Plant; formerly operated by Rocky Mountain Power, was acquired by HL&P in 2010. Located two miles below the Upper Plant, the Lower Plant utilizes the same water flows as the Upper Plant to generate up to 1500 kilowatts of energy. The Lake Creek Hydropower Plant was built by HL&P employees in 1981 to fulfill the growing energy requirements of the Heber Valley. The plant has a peak generating capacity of 2000 kilowatts, and continues to efficiently provide clean renewable energy to HL&P's customers.


Lower Snake Creek Buidling
The Jordanelle Hydroelectric Power Plant (JDPP) is a 12 megawatt project made possible by a public and private partnership between the Department of Interior, the Central Utah Water Conservancy District, and HL&P. Operation of the plant began in 2008 with a lease agreement giving HL&P the rights to market and use the power generated by the two turbine generator units.

The JDPP is a green project providing power generation that is secondary to controlling water flows. The manner of operation qualifies the facility to be certified as a low impact hydro by the Low Impact Hydropower Institute (LIHI).
HL&P's allotment of Federal Hydro Power comes from the Colorado River Storage Project (CRSP) which includes renewable hydropower generated by the Glen Canyon Dam and the Flaming Gorge Dam.

Wind
HL&P's wind resource comes from the Pleasant Valley and Horse Butte Wind Projects. The Pleasant Valley project in Uintah County, Wyoming generates power with 80 Vesta V80, 1.8-megawatt wind turbines. The Horse Butte project in Bonneville County, Idaho is capable of generating up to 57.6 megawatts of energy with HL&P entitled to up to one megawatt.

Natural Gas
HL&P owns and operates three natural gas power plants producing up to 13 megawatts of electricity. Plants operate under a strict minor pollutant source permit regulated by the Department of Air Quality.

Carbon and Other Energy Resources
Energy supply from coal comes from the Hunter II project located in Emery County, Utah and the Intermountain Power Project (IPP) located in Delta, Utah.

When planned resources are not enough to meet demand, energy is purchased from the power market. This resource comes from a mix of carbon-based resources, hydropower, wind, and natural gas.
