Founded on clean, renewable hydropower 125 years ago, Avista’s vision of environmental stewardship has always shaped our operations. From being one of the first utilities in the nation to hire a biologist, to building the first biomass power generating plant of its kind in 1983, to the signing of our Clark Fork Settlement Agreement in 1999 – which led to the “Living License” under which we operate our Clark Fork Hydroelectric Projects, our vision of a greener future has helped guide us. Today, our commitment to protect the natural resources that help provide power to the people and communities throughout the northwest is as strong as ever.
