Montana Pumped Storage Could Support Wind and Solar

A planned 400 MW pumped hydro storage project could provide electricity in lull periods of solar and wind production. The project aims to be complete by 2017 and Montana’s governor “was blown away by the innovative thinking.” The NRDC said a study from Harvard University pegs Montana’s wind potential second only to Texas in the United States. Montana has the capacity to generate wind energy 370 times over their current electricity consumption.
