The Greater Echanis Wind Projects
CEP has focused its activities in Harney County, Oregon for the past several years because CEP’s sites there show extraordinary promise to deliver renewable power in the peak demand winter months.
and a 30-foot “tall” juniper tree … that never gets more than a foot off the ground because of consistent west winds on this site …
CEP has received a land use permit to construct the Echanis project on the Mann Lake Ranch and has a contract to sell the power to a leader in renewable energy procurement. All that remains to get the project on line is to secure transmission line easements across small segments of federally-owned land to reach the grid.
The project will be the largest solar project in Oregon or Washington. It is located near the City of Arlington, OR which is served by PacifiCorp.The 2MW project will be located on 15 acres of private property just west of the Arlington city limits.
