In 2005, Iberdrola submitted a request to BPA for interconnection of up to 150 megawatts (MW) of electric power from Iberdrola’s proposed Juniper Canyon I Wind Project to the Federal Columbia River Transmission System (FCRTS), which is owned and operated by BPA. The Wind Project is one phase of a two-phased wind generation project proposed by Iberdrola in Klickitat County, Washington.  Each phase has a separate proposed point of interconnection with the FCRTS.

Iberdrola would independently build, own, and operate the Wind Project and its associated facilities, including a proposed transmission line to the proposed point of interconnection with the FCRTS.  Klickitat County, which has siting and approval jurisdiction over the Wind Project, has coordinated with Iberdrola to prepare an environmental impact statement under the Washington State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) for the Wind Project. 

Iberdrola has proposed to interconnect the Wind Project to the FCRTS at BPA’s existing Rock Creek substation in Klickitat County (see map on website).  Under its Open Access Transmission Tariff, BPA offers transmission services, including interconnection of generation, to all eligible customers on a non-discriminatory and first-come, first-served basis, subject to an environmental review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
