EDP Renovaveis' subsidiary, Horizon Wind Energy LLC, has announced that it will start producing renewable energy at its Rattlesnake Road wind farm in Gilliam County, Ore. The wind farm has an installed capacity of 103 MW and will be fully operational by the end of the year. It consists of 49 Suzlon S88 2.1 MW wind turbines.

"This is Horizon Wind Energy's second wind farm in Oregon; we will now have more than 200 MW in the region and are continuing to research new opportunities," says Antonio Martins da Costa, CEO of Horizon Wind Energy. "The West Coast is a highly attractive region for the wind industry because of its abundant resources and vastly populated areas, which drives a high demand for clean energy."

The wind farm is located on approximately 8,500 acres of private ranch land that overlooks the banks of the Columbia River.
