    PGE will spend $160 million on massive renewable energy project in eastern Oregon

    Mike Rogoway, February 13, 2019 (Oregonian via OregonLive)

    Plans for a giant renewable energy project combining wind and solar power generation with battery storage, in the works for nine years, were filed by] Portland General Electric…[It would build the project with] NextEra Energy, subject to approval by NextEra management and sign-off by the Oregon Public Utility Commission…[The] proposed Wheatridge Renewable Energy Facility will combine 300 megawatts of wind energy with 50 megawatts of solar power and 30 megawatts of storage…

    [When the wind, scheduled to be online by the end of 2020, and the solar and battery storage, scheduled for construction starting in 2021, are complete. Wheatridge] would be the largest [project] in North America integrating those three technologies…Clean energy advocates say battery technology is an important component of long-term plans to reduce atmospheric emissions that cause climate change…[because of the variability of New Energy] sources, including wind and solar…[PGE will spend $160 million to] own 100 megawatts of wind power generated by Wheatridge…[and contract for] the remaining output from NextEra in a 30-year agreement…” click here for more
