Oregon council meets to consider wind farm amendments

The Oregon Energy Facility met Friday in The Dalles to consider approval of amendments to site certificates for two wind farms in Sherman County.

Klondike Three Wind Project LLC is requesting an amendment that would make changes to the physical layout of the facility. It would allow the certificate holder to use wind turbines having a higher generating capacity than currently permitted in the site certificate.

Portland General Electric is requesting an amendment to the site certificate for the Biglow Canyon Wind Farm. It would name PGE as the certificate holder in place of Orion Sherman County Wind Farm LLC.

PGE is not requesting any other changes to the terms and conditions of the site certificate.
