Sagebrush Power Partners LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Horizon Wind Energy LLC, requested interconnection of up to 108 MW of electricity generated from the proposed Kitt itas Valley Wind Project in Kitt itas County, Wash.

Whistling Ridge Wind Interconnection Project - Skamania County, Wash.
BPA has been asked by SDS Lumber Company to interconnect its proposed Whistling Ridge Energy Project in Skamania County, Wash., to the Federal Columbia River Transmission System. WRE would independently build, own and operate the wind project and associated facilities. To inform its decision on whether to allow the proposed interconnection, BPA will prepare a joint EIS with the State of Washington Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council. BPA and Washington EFSEC held a joint public scoping meeting last month. For more information, go to www.efw.bpa.gov/environmental_services/Document_Library/Whistling_Ridge/.

Iberdrola Renewables requested interconnection of up to 200 MW of electricity generated from the proposed Leaning Juniper II Wind Power Project. Iberdrola will independently build, own and operate the wind project and its associated facilities. BPA signed a tiered ROD on April 3, 2009 to interconnect the project. BPA will expand its existing Jones Canyon Substation by about one acre, adding one 230-kV circuit breaker and two disconnect switches to the substation in Gilliam County, Ore.
