Special meeting of Energy Facility Siting Council is Sept. 27

​SALEM — A special meeting of Oregon’s Energy Facility Siting Council is set for Thursday, Sept. 27. The meeting, which concerns the Helix Wind Power Facility in northeast Oregon, will be via teleconference and begins at 9 a.m. The call-in number is 1-877-214-5010 and the access code is 799345.

At the meeting, the council will address a written request by Irene Gilbert to reconsider a recent council decision. In August, EFSC denied a contested case proceeding on the Request for Amendment No. 2 of the facility. The amendment allows the wind farm developer to extend by two years the construction and completion deadline of the facility.
