Wind project announced for The Dalles

A new wind farm in The Dalles could eventually power 12,000 homes. Newton, Mass.-based UPC Wind Management LLC needs site approval from the state's Department of Energy before beginning construction on the 60-megawatt facility, which would feature 40 wind turbines. The proposal would help satisfy a legislative proposal that utilities get 25 percent of their power from renewable energy by 2025. Only 1 percent of the state's power came from wind and geothermal sources in 2002, according to the most recent data from Oregon's Department of Energy. UPC Wind is building a portfolio of 3,800 megawatts of wind power across several states, including Hawaii, Maine and New York.
