Aswan High Dam
The Imperial Irrigation District Board of Directors approved a contract that will secure more energy from Hoover Dam.
On Tuesday , Directors approved the Boulder Canyon Implementation Agreement and electric service contract that will provide the district with an additional 3 megawatts of renewable energy from the dam. That brings the reallocation total to 10 megawatts. IID Board President Norma Sierra Galindo said , " This is an example of how IID is working to diversify it's energy portfolio while , at the same time , investing in low cost energy resources."
IID will pay an all-in rate of $27 - $29 per megawatt-hour as compared to IID's all-in average which ranges between $50 - $75 per megawatt-hour. The district will receive the energy at Blythe beginning October 1, 2017. IID staff procured transmission service across the Western Area Power Administration in five-year increments , affording the district roll-over rights.
THE HOOVER DAM IS THE BIGGEST DAM IN THE US.
HURRICANS ARE VERY VERY DANGEROUS.
