Throwback Thursday: Today's photo shows one of the District's displays at a local fair. The display not only shows the benefits of having electrically powered homes but also displays the plans for the "Swift Creek No. 2" as they called it back then. Swift No. 2 is the third in a series of four hydroelectric projects on the North Fork Lewis River. Beginning downstream, the projects in order are Merwin, Yale, Swift No. 2 and Swift No. 1. PacifiCorp owns Merwin, Yale and Swift No. 1 and operates all four projects as a coordinated hydroelectric system. Swift No. 2 was originally built in 1956. The powerhouse produces 66.8 megawatts of power and averages an annual generation of 249,716,206 kilowatt hours (KWh) which powers about 11,560 homes each year.
