Proposed. Nolin Hills Wind, LLC (applicant), a subsidiary of Capital Power Corporation, filed a complete ASC on January 31, 2022; the ASC may be viewed via hyperlinks provided below or in hard copy at the Oregon Department of Energy Salem office.
The Proposed Order on the ASC was issued on August 4, 2022, following Council’s June 24, 2022 review of the Draft Proposed Order (DPO) on the ASC and issues raised in comments received on the record of the DPO public hearing (April 19 through May 26 (public)/June 24 (applicant response)). A petition for contested case was received on the Proposed Order on the ASC (provided in timeline below); therefore, the Council’s appointed Hearings Officer from the Office of Administrative Hearings will conduct a contested case proceeding, expected to commence in September 2022.
Following the contested case proceeding, Council will take action to either approve, modify, or reject the Department's Proposed Order and Hearing Officer's Proposed Contested Case Order, and will issue a Final Order on the Application for Site Certificate either denying or approving a site certificate.
