Wind

Our proposed 350 MW Nolin Hills Wind 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. Such application to EFSC is anticipated in January 2020. Interconnection for the project is being sought through Umatilla Electric Cooperative and Bonneville Power Administration. Based on current project schedule, construction could begin in 2021.
*Expected.
