Lime Wind: Reused turbines creating renewable power

Featured Content


The first wind farm in Baker County and Oregon’s first on Bureau of Land Management land went on line in the summer of 2012, thanks in part to a $2.5 million SELP loan. The $7 million, three-megawatt Lime Wind project is unique in other ways, too. It is owned and operated by a single family – the Randy Joseph family of Sumpter – and was constructed with six used, 500-kilowatt turbines. The wind farm is located just east of I-84 between Baker City and Ontario. It is producing enough electricity to power about 800 homes and has a 20-year power purchase agreement with Idaho Power.
