Utilities with hydroelectric power generation need solid data for day-to-day operations and long-term planning. So, when managers at Idaho Falls Power wanted to explore the potential of their power generation assets, they turned to Idaho National Laboratory for help. Because of location, the pairing is a natural one. Idaho Falls [...]
