NEWIEE Western NE Chapter’s Tour of FirstLight Power Resource’s Northfield Mountain Pumped-Storage Facility
June 7 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join us for a tour of the Northfield Mountain Pumped-Storage Facility in Northfield, Massachusetts! This 1,200 MW pumped-storage facility is located approximately 5.2 miles upstream of Turners Falls Dam and includes a man-made upper reservoir situated atop Northfield Mountain. Water is typically pumped from the Turners Falls Impoundment to an upper reservoir at night to allow for power generation during the day. When generating, water is passed via an underground pressure shaft to an underground powerhouse. An underground tailrace tunnel then delivers water back to the Turners Falls Impoundment.
Join us for a tour of this impressive facility Thursday, June 7, 2018, 11 AM to 4 PM (Lunch will be provided! We will meet at the offices of ISO New England in Holyoke, Massachusetts where we will board a 15-passenger van for travel to and from Northfield, Massachusetts.
Please RSVP to Weezie Nuara at email@example.com. Space is limited!
