Unanimous yes vote advances gorge wind farm development  

Shepherds Flat, touted by its developers as the world’s largest wind farm, received a unanimous nod Friday from a state committee approving its site in the Columbia River Gorge.

The wind farm, developed by privately held Caithness Energy of New York, is said to be capable of generating 909 megawatts at its peak through as many as 303 turbines – enough to power some 225,000 homes and double the state’s current wind-generated energy capacity.

The project, which state officials said could employ as many as 300 people, will be in Gilliam and Morrow counties between Oregon 19 and Oregon 74, about five miles southeast of Arlington.
