It will be located nine miles northwest of helix. Transmission lines will likely extend west and connect with either PacifiCorp lines or Bonneville Power Administration lines.

From March 10 to April 6, the council is taking public comment on the proposed facility. People

After reviewing the public comment the Oregon Department of Energy will issue a Draft Proposed Order. Once that’s out, it will schedule a public hearing, at which people will have another chance to comment in person or in writing.
