Located on the Oregon-Washington border at the terminus of the Pacific AC and DC intertie transmission lines, GridAmerica Holdings' proposed Goldendale project would help store and export the Northwest region's increasing wind power capacity to nearby states if constructed, according to a DOE EERE news release.
Similarly, wind power capacity is on the rise in Wyoming. Absaroka Energy's proposed Banner Mountain project lies along the route of the proposed 500-kV Energy Gateway West transmission line. If built the pumped-storage hydropower project would store and enhance transmission of hydroelectric power by serving additional areas in the western and southwestern US.
