Lake Elsinore Advanced Pumping System (LEAPS)

The Lake Elsinore Advanced Pumping System (LEAPS) being proposed by the Nevada Hydro Company includes two primary components: 1) The advanced pumping station, for which a dam would be built in the mountains above Lake Elsinore. At night, when energy costs are low, up to 10% of the volume of the lake would be pumped up the hill and into the reservoir, and during the day, when energy prices are high, the water would be released through a hydro-electric facility, generating power on its way back into the lake. That power would then be sold on the open market. 2) 32 miles of 500 kV transmission lines and 170 high-voltage steel towers, running from San Diego County across the Cleveland National Forest, into Temescal Valley, and through the RCA’s Multi-Species Habitat Conservation Areas.  Supervisor Jeffries and the Riverside County Board of Supervisors have officially sent a letter of opposition to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), who is solely responsible for ultimate approval or denial of the project, but they have decided to allow the project to move forward through the application process, and there is currently a public comment period open to request further studies on the project, which closes on December 1st.
 
The following information comes from WeAreTV.org, which has taken the lead on organizing local opposition to the project:
