Description:

PGE's Tucannon River Wind project is 266.8 MW (116 Siemens 2.3 MW turbines).
Construction began in September 2013 and completed in December 2014.

Tucannon River Wind Farm is located on 20,000 acres near Dayton, Washington in Columbia County. Scheduled to begin construction in late 2013, the $500 million project will have a total installed capacity of 267 MW, making it PGE’s second largest renewable project. Given the variability of wind, Tucannon River is expected to produce an average of around 101 MW — enough to power the homes of about 84,000 PGE residential customers.

Project brings 18 full-time family-wage jobs to Columbia County along with up to 300 construction jobs. Other local benefits include income for businesses, increased county tax revenue and easement payments to landowners.

Tucannon River Wind is phase 2 of the Lower Snake River Wind project. PSE sold this section of the larger project to PGE. Tucson River Wind is within the western half of the Tucannon Wind Resource Area (WRA) of the Lower Snake River Wind development. (Development has 4 WRAs -- Tucannon, Oliphant, Kuhl Ridge and Dutch Flat)
