Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) has been asked by Iberdrola Renewables, Inc. (Iberdrola) to interconnect up to 404 megawatts of electricity generated from the Montague Wind Power Project in Gilliam County, Oregon, to BPA’s transmission system. To interconnect the proposed Project, BPA would need to expand the existing Slatt Substation also in Gilliam County, Oregon by approximately one acre. BPA currently owns this land. BPA does not propose to purchase any of the power produced by this wind project.
As a federal agency, BPA must consider the environmental impacts of its decision to interconnect under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). BPA is asking for your comments on the proposed interconnection including the proposed Slatt Substation expansion.
