The Carty Generating Station is a 450 megawatt, combined-cycle natural gas-fueled electric generating power plant, and includes a not-yet-constructed 50 megawatt solar PV electric power generating unit on 315 acres (0.49 sq. miles). The facility is located within an overall site boundary of approximately 4,997 acres.

Operating. On November 19, 2020, the Council approved the Final Order on Request for Amendment 2 (RFA2) and issued an amended site certificate for the Carty Generating Station. The Final Order authorizes: incorporation of shared infrastructure and existing facilities (shared by the Boardman Coal Plant facility (BCP) and Carty Generating Station) into the Carty Generating Station site certificate; modification of the Site Boundary of the Carty Generating Station; amendment of a WPCF permit, issued by Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ);  and construction of new infrastructure including but not limited to a septic system, water pipeline, wastewater pipeline, security guard station, office and warehouse space, and a 230 kV substation (Carty substation).
