Wind power plant under construction  

PPM Energy on Thursday said it is constructing a third wind power plant near Wasco.

Klondike III is expected to be commercially operational in 2007.

Located in Sherman County adjacent to PPM’s existing Klondike I and Klondike II Wind Power Plants, Klondike III is expected to generate 221 megawatts of electricity. Typically, a wind farm of this size can provide clean, renewable electricity to more than 56,000 homes, according to the American Wind Energy Association’s calculation.

Portland-based PPM Energy, a subsidiary of Glasgow, Scotland-based ScottishPower (NYSE: SPI), is in discussions with a number of entities for the sale of energy and renewable energy credits from the project.

Up to 135 jobs, with approximately half of them from the region, will be created during the 10-month construction period. The project is expected to purchase about $4 million in local construction materials, such as gravel and concrete, and create approximately $1 million of demand for local services, such as fuel, food and lodging.
