Project's second phase to add 50 turbines 

Fifty additional wind turbines will join the 78 now being built in northeast Columbia County.

The new project will be known as Marengo Project Phase II, and construction may begin in June, Columbia County Planner Clark Posey said this morning.

Like the Marengo I project, the new phase will be built by Blue Sky Wind LLC, an affiliate of Renewable Energy Systems, Ltd. The 90 megawatts of electricity anticipated from Phase II will be transmitted over lines owned by PacifiCorp, Posey said.

Puget Sound Energy owns 83 turbines capable of generating150 megawatts of electricity. That project, the Hopkins Ridge Project, was completed at the end of 2005. Renewable Energy Systems also developed the Hopkins Ridge Project.

When the Marengo II project is complete, there will be 211 wind turbines in Columbia County.

A public information meeting is set for 7 p.m. April 11 at the Seneca Activity Center, Posey said.
