Bakeoven Solar Project is a proposed solar photovoltaic energy generation facility with a nominal generating capacity of 303 megawatts (MW), and a proposed battery storage system capable of storing 100 MW of energy. Other proposed components include a substation, operations and maintenance building, and an approximately 11-mile, 230 kilovolt transmission line. The proposed facility components would be located within a site boundary of approximately 10,615 acres, and would permanently disturb approximately 2,717 acres.

Proposed. Bakeoven Solar, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Avangrid Renewables (applicant) filed a complete Application for Site Certificate (ASC) on November 4, 2019; the ASC exhibits may be viewed via hyperlinks provided below or in hard copy at the Oregon Department of Energy office in Salem.
