Description

Pumped underground hydro storage (PUSH) works on the same principle as hydropower plants. We use excess electricity in the grid, during the night hours when wind power plants are generating and we use the cheap electricity to pump water from the lower underground reservoir to pump water in the upper underground reservoir. During the day when we need more electricity, we use water in the reservoir to flow due to gravity and generate electricity. We develop such a facility in abandoned underground mines in Michigan.
