Hydroelectric project planned near Homedale


Rep. Neil Anderson, R-Blackfoot, says it would be useful to have a full accounting of all federal funds going to local school districts, not just the federal funds that are appropriated through the Legislature annually.

The Fargo Drop, near Homedale, is a hydroelectric project with the capability of providing up to 1.27 megawatts of energy and power for around 800 homes. The project is one of several small small green energy projects going on throughout the state, according to Idaho Power.

The project will cost $1.7 million and is expected to begin operation by August 2012. Of that $1.7 million, $580,000 will come from the Bureau of Reclamation from grant money.
