That is a very broad request. Can you be specific?

The Chief Joseph Dam is a concrete gravity dam on the Columbia River, 2.4 km (1.5 mi) upriver from Bridgeport, Washington, USA. The dam is 877 km (545 mi) upriver from the mouth of the Columbia at Astoria, Oregon.

There are many small privately held hydroelectric operations and some periodically come up for sale. I had hoped this post would be productive, as the same thread a few years ago had several good ideas.

I am only aware of one actively for sale, Deep Creek Hydro. Annual production is in the range of 1800 megawatts a year but the facility is not operational at this time.

Any useful information would be appreciated

Jonsson, can you tell us ANYTHING that might narrow your request?

So far the only things we know are:
1800 megawatts/year is unacceptable
The facility must be operational at this time
.

Actually we don't know anything. You seemed to have editorialized, not given criteria.

Throw us a bone!

I have visited the deep creek hydro site (May 2012) and know a lot about it. The owner, Gordon Foster, is partially disabled and spends the winters in MX. He's reachable by phone or text. Ocasionally by email. I have a lot of the information you may want but frankly have found the site uneconomical. The best year power production was <1,200Mwh. The current Grid operator pays ~$51/Mwh with a decrement of 16% in peak season (Mar-Jun) and a 8% increment off peak. I will answer some questions but feel like I may be stepping on Gordon's toes with too much.

I own a 400KW "run of the river" licensed project in the Western US that I am contemplating selling. Let me know if you are still interested.
