The US state of Oregon has authorised a subsidiary of Caithness Energy to build the up to 399-MW Saddle Butte wind farm, according to information on the website of the department of energy.

In particular, the Energy Facility Siting Council (EFSC) has issued a final order for the site certificate at its meeting on November 3, 2016. The particular site certificate was executed on November 17.

The certificate holder, Saddle Butte Wind LLC, now has to commence construction work by November 2019 and to complete the wind farm by November 17, 2022. The plan envisages erecting up to 133 wind turbines on private land in Gilliam and Morrow counties.

Saddle Butte Wind is wholly-owned by Columbia Wind LLC, which in turn is a fully-owned subsidiary of Caithness Corporation.
