BPA has been asked by BP Alternative Energy to interconnect up to 200 megawatts of electricity generated from their proposed Golden Hills Wind Project in Sherman County, Ore. to the Federal Columbia River Transmission System. BP Alternative Energy would independently build, own and operate the wind project and associated facilities.
The Oregon Energy Facility Siting Council (EFSC) has siting and approval jurisdiction over the proposed wind project. If the project is approved, BPA proposes to construct additional equipment at the existing Biglow Canyon Substation.
Construction began in August 2009 and was delayed by the BP Alternative Energy – no present schedule for completion.
