Bad Creek Hydro captures award

February 1, 2013

Employees at Duke Energy’s Bad Creek Pumped Storage Hydrolectric Station in Oconee County are being honored today for their leadership in conservation and education programs. The workers are being recognized at the S.C. Wildlife Federation’s annual awards banquet for their involvement in Trout Unlimited’s “Scoutin’ for Trout,” and National Hunting and Fishing Day events, as well as an education program at the Bad Creek Outdoor Classroom. That classroom and its covered shelter are surrounded by trails, a butterfly garden, a weather station and wildlife feeding stations. There, students can learn about local flora and fauna, as well as how Duke generates electricity through a pumped storage system, using the same water over and over again, making more efficient use of water resources.
