Oregon: Green Power Leader

Oregon is set to become a leader in renewable wind energy. The Shepard’s Flat wind turbine farm has been approved, and Caithness Energy is planning on spending 2 billion dollars for the project in Northeastern Oregon. The closest town is Arlington, along the Columbia River, which I had to look up. The power will be fed into the BPA grid, and exported to our neighbors to the south, in California. Eugene’s local utility, EWEB, has its own renewable energy program, called Greenpower, which receives power from wind turbine farms, among other sources.
