Our pioneering commitment to renewable energy began in the early 1980s with a demonstration wind project on the southern Oregon coast, followed by an experimental utility-scale wind project in Wyoming in the 1990s.
Renewable generation from company-owned and contracted solar and wind facilities represent an important and growing segment of our resource mix.
Through our Energy Vision 2020 initiative, we've significantly expanded the amount of wind power serving customers and "repowered" our existing wind resources.
Black Cap started generating electricity for customers in October 2012 and produces enough energy to serve about 400 average homes annually. Black Cap was the first utility-scale solar operation in Oregon to begin supplying power.
Cedar Springs II is a 199-megawatt wind facility near Douglas, Wyoming.
Dunlap I is located in Carbon County, Wyoming (near Medicine Bow). The turbines generate 111 megawatts of electricity.
Ekola Flats is located near Medicine Bow, Wyoming. Together, the turbines generate 250 megawatts of electricity.
Foote Creek I is a 41.4-megawatt project in Carbon County, Wyoming. It was the company's first wind facility and the first utility-scale wind project in Wyoming, a jointly owned demonstration project commissioned in 1999.
Foote Creek is in the process of being repowered and is expected to be completed in 2021.
