The Oregon Energy Facility Siting Council has approved a site certificate for the 909 MW Shepherds Flat Wind Farm in Gilliam and Morrow counties.

"With the council's unanimous approval, we have taken a large step toward meeting Gov. [Ted] Kulongoski's climate change goals by developing clean, renewable energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions," says Michael Grainey, director of the Oregon Department of Energy.

The project is being developed by Caithness Shepherds Flat LLC of Sacramento, Calif., which proposes 303 wind turbines with a peak capacity of 909 MW. The power output of the facility would enter the federal Columbia River Transmission System through Bonneville Power Administration's Slatt Substation.
