The first application comes from SoloPower, which is requesting $20 million to fund a 75-megawatt, thin-film solar manufacturing plant in Wilsonville. The second application is from Rogue Creamery, which is requesting $800,000 to fund a 57.96-kilowatt solar array on its manufacturing facility in Central Point.
 
Bob Repine, Director of the Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE), will make the final decision on the requests after reviewing SELPAC’s recommendations.
