U.S. state helps fund 850-kW Quemahoning project

The Pennsylvania Energy Development Authority is providing a $269,000 grant to Cambria Somerset Authority, which will use the money for design and other work to develop an 850-kW hydropower project at Quemahoning Reservoir.

Gov. Edward Rendell announced the energy development authority approved $8.5 million in grants and loans for Quemahoning and two dozen other “clean energy” projects.

Cambria Somerset Authority already holds a preliminary permit from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to study the feasibility of developing a larger project at Quemahoning Creek, 100-MW Que Pumped-Storage (No. 12581). While development of the two projects is not linked, both would use water from Quemahoning Reservoir.
