Wind Project Conncetion Work Startsby Staff
BPA Journal, April 2005
BPA construction crews began work in early March on this years first project to interconnect a new wind generation site. BPA's Tucannon River switching station will integrate up to 150 megawatts of power into the Walla Walla-North Lewiston 115-kilovolt line from the Hopkins Ridge wind project, now being built in Columbia County, Wash. The site, a project of Blue Sky Wind, LLC, will generate up to 350 MW to the federal grid that BPA operates. The remainder will interconnect through utility transmission providers.
Blue Sky is funding the work and will be reimbursed with future BPA transmission services of equal value. The new switching station is on five acres of land near Dayton, Wash. Blue Sky will build the line from the wind facility to the station. The project should be operating by this December.
