Our proposed 600 MW Nolin Hills Energy project is currently under development in Umatilla County, Oregon. The project is sited on approximately 45,000 acres located west of Pendleton, Oregon and under long-term lease from a single landowner party. The project features a wind profile differentiated from the typical Columbia River Gorge resource. In September 2017, Capital Power filed a Notice of Intent with Oregon’s Energy Facility Siting Council (EFSC) to apply for a Site Certificate for an up to 350MW wind project. This application to EFSC was subsequently amended in November 2020 to add up to 250 MW of solar and storage capacity at the site. Interconnection for the project is being sought through Umatilla Electric Cooperative and Bonneville Power Administration.

Based on current project schedule, construction could begin in 2024.

Project Details

Land: 100% land control of approx. 45,000 acre site under long-term lease.

Turbine: To be determined.

Permitting: Project will require an Oregon Energy Facility Siting Council (EFSC) Site Certificate: notice of Intent filed September 2017; amendment filed in November 2020. Site Certificate is anticipated in Q4 2021.

Wind Resource: Long-term site-specific data collected by five met towers plus Triton SODAR unit (installed beginning 2010).

Solar panels: To be determined.

Interconnection: System Impact Study complete, Facilities Study underway. Interconnection is proposed at 230kV to either Umatilla Electric Cooperative or Bonneville Power Administration with ultimate delivery to BPA’s McNary Substation.

Consultation and Engagement

We value and consider local community interests and priorities. We engage government, employees, local communities, investors, shareholders, and Indigenous communities. Our goal for every project, every facility and every initiative, internal and external, is to build, operate, and align with the interests and priorities of those closest to, and most impacted by, our operations.
