When your utility needs to produce more energy, water is released downhill, using gravity it picks up speed and then turns a generator at the bottom to generate electricity. When energy prices are low and there is not as much demand (middle of the night for example) the utility will use a water pump to pump water back up and refill the reservoir, thereby using energy that is not being utilized to create energy when it is needed.

The wind tends to blow harder in the pre-dawn hours, while most of us are still sleeping, but may not be blowing when we are running our AC or when we’re at work. Using that wind energy to pump water to the reservoir to be used when there is peak demand is a great way to store that renewable energy that would have gone un-utilized.
