NAW Staff, Tuesday 16 October 2007 - 14:07:49

Portland General Electric Co.'s Biglow Canyon Wind Farm began generating electricity as the first several wind turbines on PGE's first, wholly owned and operated wind farm began supplying power on the Pacific Northwest's electricity grid, according to the company.

Phase one of the Biglow project is on track for completion by the end of this year, and will comprise 76 turbines with an installed capacity of 125 MW of electricity.

Biglow Canyon Wind Farm, located near Wasco in Sherman County, Ore., is PGE's newest renewable energy project and is expected to ultimately be one of the largest wind power facilities in the region. When all three phases of the project are completed, PGE expects the wind farm to have between 400 MW and 450 MW of installed capacity.
