The West Linn Solar Highway Project
West Linn
Artist's rendering of the West Linn site
After conducting numerous site assessment and public outreach activities in 2010, ODOT determined the site was suitable for a solar highway project, and the site is included in ODOT’s solar highway project site inventory. Due to the requirements of the State’s Business Energy Tax Credit, the project will not be financed until 2012 at the earliest. ODOT has elected to initiate the process to acquire a land use permit from the city of West Linn in advance of project financing. That process includes public notice and a public hearing. Construction would begin after the city permitting process is completed and after financing is in place.
