Missouri River Power Generation Sub-Par In 2013

Missouri River Power Generation Sub-Par In 2013
BISMARCK, ND -

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says electric power generation from the Missouri River's six upstream dams fell far below average in 2013.

The corps says energy production from the dams in the Dakotas, Montana and Nebraska totaled 7.6 billion kilowatts of electricity last year, down from 10.4 billion kilowatts in 2012.

Corps spokesman Mike Swenson says more water was kept in reservoirs last year to make up for a dry 2012.

The shortfall in production meant the Western Area Power Administration had to get energy from other, more expensive sources. And that cost is passed on to ratepayers.

WAPA buys and sells power from 55 hydropower plants around the nation.
