Interconnection Agreement in Place for Idaho Wind Project

Ridgeline Energy has completed a large-generator interconnection agreement with PacifiCorp to support Goshen II, a proposed 90-megawatt (MW) wind project near Idaho Falls, Idaho, that is being developed as a joint venture between Ridgeline Energy and BP Alternative Energy.

The companies have obtained conditional use permits from Bonneville and Bingham counties and completed all necessary meteorological and engineering studies to construct the project in 2007. Ridgeline Energy, which focuses on developing utility-scale wind energy projects in the Pacific Northwest and western U.S., developed Idaho’s first large-scale wind farm and is currently developing several wind projects; it has a portfolio of sites representing more than 3,700 MW of potential capacity. BP Alternative Energy, which is building more than 450 MW of new wind facilities in 2007, combines BP’s interests in low and zero-carbon power generation (wind, solar, hydrogen power) with carbon capture and storage and gas-fired power generation.
