SUGAR LAND--July 28, 2021--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--The U.S. is experiencing one of the hottest summers in recent memory, with wildfires and extreme heat hitting record levels across the Pacific Northwest. Temperatures in Portland, Oregon, and central Washington state hit record highs toward the end of June, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), while temperatures in Boise, Idaho, were just shy of record levels. But power generators remain cautiously optimistic the stunning heat will not disrupt most of the region's power supply. Industrial Info is tracking more than $1.5 billion worth of power-generation projects under construction in Idaho, Oregon and Washington, more than $620 million of which is attributed to hydropower projects.
Within this article: Details on some of the major power-generation projects under construction across Idaho, Oregon and Washington, including those from companies such as IDACORP Incorporated, Amalgamated Sugar Company LLC, NextEra Energy Incorporated (NYSE:NEE) and Portland General Electric Company (NYSE:POR).
