Avista’s Clean Energy Test Site

Giving clean energy a place to grow.

Our commitment to clean, renewable energy includes supporting research and development at our five-acre Clean Energy Test Site. This is where exciting new technologies are tested and applied to utility operations in an effort to bring more renewable power to the grid. Currently, two innovative solar energy firms are conducting trials at the site. GreenVolts is testing its high concentration photovoltaic system. Sopogy is testing a concentrated solar thermal system.
