How will the CFPP contirbute to energy diversity of the region and how will it reduce CO2 emissions?

Today, eastern Idaho’s electricity is generated predominantly from hydro (>50%) and gas or coal (~35%), with the remaining coming from other renewables (<10%) data-preserve-html-node="true" and nuclear (<5%). data-preserve-html-node="true" The Carbon-Free Power Project would add more baseload (24-7) carbon emission-free power to the mix and reduce our region's long term dependence on coal and natural gas power generation.
