THE DALLES, Ore. – Developers seeking to build the Summit Ridge Wind Farm near The Dalles are asking to shrink and delay their project.

The Oregon Department of Energy said Friday it will take public comments on the proposal until Sept. 19.

LotusWorks, an Irish company, is asking to extend an Aug. 19 deadline to begin construction by two years. It’s also asking to reduce the maximum number of wind turbines from 87 to 72, reduce the peak generating capacity, and increase the maximum height for the turbines and blades.

The proposed wind farm is located southeast of The Dalles near the Deschutes River in Wasco County.
