Horse Heaven Wind & Sun
The Horse Heaven Clean Energy Center will combine wind, solar, and battery storage components to produce up to 1150MW of renewable energy for the region and the State of Washington. This hybrid approach will help stabilize grids, increase efficiencies, and lower power costs.
At full build-out, the Horse Heaven project will generate substantial property tax revenue to Benton County over the design life of the project (approximately 25 years), and under current allocations, the largest proportion of those funds would support local schools. The project will be located just south of the Tri-Cities and promises to create hundreds of well-paying jobs for the community.
The Horse Heaven Clean Energy Center is being developed by Scout Clean Energy, a utility-scale clean energy developer based in Boulder, Colorado. Scout has an extensive track record developing large-scale projects and is supported by local experts and project managers with deep experience in the Tri-Cities community.
