Facilities

Montague Wind Power Facility is approved to be wind energy facility with up to 269 wind turbines and would generate approximately 404 megawatts, located within a site boundary of approximately 33,717 acres.
Under Review/Approved: The facility has not been built. Construction of the facility began before the September 14, 2017 deadline and must be completed by September 14, 2020. On January 9, 2018, the Department received preliminary Request for Amendment 4 (pAMD4) of the Montague Wind Power Facility Site Certificate. RFA4 requests Council’s approval for the following primary components: expansion of the site boundary to encompass an additional 13,339 acres; wind turbine relocation and turbine model option modifications; and the addition of both a solar array and battery storage system to the proposed expanded site boundary. On July 9, 2019, the Department issued a Proposed Order on Request for Amendment 4 and a Public Notice of the Proposed Order and Opportunity to Request a Contested Case (notice). Petitions requesting a contested case proceeding on the proposed order must be received by the Department by 5 p.m. on August 9, 2019, as further described in the notice provided below. ​
