Review/Operating. In August 2016, PGE submitted a request to amend the site
certificate to extend the construction deadline for the previously approved
Unit 2 natural gas power generating facility, add a Unit 3 natural gas power
facility, and add a 50-megawatt solar electric facility. In May 2017, prior
to an EFSC decision on that amendment request, PGE suspended the review. On
February 20, 2018, ODOE received a revised amendment request from PGE. The
request includes only the solar electric facility on
approximately 300 acres.
As the original amendment
request was received by ODOE in 2016, the request is being processed under the
EFSC rules and administrative procedures that existed at that time. The
Department has issued public notice and is currently accepting public comments
on the amendment request. Comments must be submitted in writing to the
Department and must be received by April 6, 2018 at 5 p.m. Please see the public
notice for additional information regarding submittal of comments.
