Ridgeline Energy LLC, a Seattle-headquartered wind farm developer, has formed an interconnection agreement with PacifiCorp, a Portland, Ore.-based energy provider, to support the Goshen II wind project.

The Goshen II is a proposed 90 MW wind farm that will be located near Idaho Falls, Idaho.

According to the companies, they have obtained conditional use permits from Bonneville and Bingham counties and completed all necessary meteorological and engineering studies to construct the project in 2007.
