Spokane River Project

Spokane RiverWelcome to Avista's Spokane River Hydroelectric Project.

Avista was founded on clean, renewable hydropower with the construction of the Monroe Street Hydroelectric Development in 1889. Today, Monroe Street and our other hydroelectric facilities on the Spokane River have the capability to generate more than 100 megawatts of clean, reliable hydroelectric energy, enough to power more than 75,000 of our customers' homes.

The Spokane River Project was relicensed by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on June 18, 2009 for a term of 50 years and consists of five hydroelectric developments on the Spokane River; four in the state of Washington (Upper Falls, Monroe Street, Nine Mile, and Long Lake) and the Post Falls hydroelectric development in Idaho. 

For more information about our Spokane River Project's hydroelectric developments, recent news, resources (Aquatic Weeds, Cultural Resources, Bald Eagles, Erosion, Fisheries, Hydro Maintenance, Land Use, Public Safety, Recreation, River Flows, Water Quality, and Wetlands), and our FERC License, please refer to the links on the left below Spokane River Project, or click on the images below.
