EIS-0183: Record of Decision

Electrical Interconnection of the Willow Creek Wind Project

The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) has decided to offer contract terms for interconnection of up to 72 megawatts (MW) of power to be generated by the proposed Willow Creek Wind Project (Wind Project) into the Federal Columbia River Transmission System (FCRTS). Willow Creek Energy LLC (WCE) proposes to construct and operate the proposed Wind Project in Gilliam and Morrow counties, Oregon, and has requested interconnection to the FCRTS at a point along BPA’s existing Tower Road-Alkali 115-kilovolt (kV) transmission line in Gilliam County, Oregon. BPA will construct a tap to allow the Wind Project to interconnect to BPA’s transmission line, and will install new equipment at BPA’s existing Boardman Substation in Morrow County, Oregon to accommodate this additional power in the FCRTS.
