Cascade Wind Interconnection Project
BPA Journal, October 2007
Wasco County, Ore. - BPA has been asked by UPC Oregon Wind, LLC to interconnect up to 50-MW of electricity generated from UPC's proposed Cascade Wind Project. UPC would independently build, own and operate the wind project and its associated facilities. The Oregon Energy Facility Siting Council has siting and approval jurisdiction over the proposed wind project. If UPC's project is approved, BPA proposes to construct a new switchyard and tap beneath BPA's existing Hood River-The Dalles 115-kV transmission line. Comments were accepted through Aug. 10, 2007. BPA is preparing an environmental review. For more information, see BPA's Web site: www.transmission.bpa.gov/PlanProj/Wind/ default.cfm?page=cascade.
