Valley View Electricity

Chart of Energy Use Showing Weekly Pool Cleaning Chart of Energy Use Showing Weekly Pool Cleaning

All of the electricity at the hot springs is supplied by a hydroelectric plant that has limited production capability. Our kilowatts are over allocated. Many people would like hot water in the pools all winter and we do our best to maximize the available power. Electric cars are increasingly prevalent. These may be helpful in reducing carbon emissions and slowing climate change. We are investigating some possibilities for electric car charging stations and would like to contribute to carbon free miles. One possibility is solar powered charging stations but we're not there yet. For the time being , we ask that you arrive with sufficient gasoline, diesel, or charged electric car batteries. The electricity produced here is precious and already called for. Neither can we be a gas station for those that neglect to fill up in town. Think ahead! When we get to the point where we can help, we'll let you know.
