The 205 MW White Creek Wind Project has been dedicated in Roosevelt, Wash. The project began commercial production in November and features 89 2.3 MW Siemens wind turbines. It is located on 9,500 acres of ranchland in Klickitat County.

Lakeview Light & Power, Tanner Electric Co-op, Cowlitz County Public Utility District (PUD) and Klickitat County PUD are the utility partners that initiated the project. All four are members of Last Mile Electric Co-op (LMEC), a group of 12 consumer-owned utilities and non-profits formed in 2000 to promote renewable power in the region.

The four utilities sold the project to White Creek Wind I (WCW) in late 2006. WCW I is composed of affiliates of Prudential Capital Group, Lehman Brothers and Summit Power. North American Energy Services oversees project operations. The four utilities have entered into 20-year power purchase agreements with WCW I and have the option to repurchase the project after 10 years.
