Facilities

Stateline Wind Project is a wind energy facility consisting of two geographic units – Stateline 1 & 2 and Vansycle II. Stateline 1 & 2 is composed of 186 wind turbines and has a peak generating capacity of up to 123 megawatts. Vansycle II consists of 42 wind turbines with a peak generating capacity of 99 MW and is approved for up to 45 wind turbines with a peak generating capacity of up to 119 megawatts.

Under Review/Operating: On June 10, 2022, the Department issued a Proposed Order on Request for Amendment 7 of the Stateline Wind Project site certificate (RFA7). RFA7 seeks Council approval to amend the approved turbine specifications (specifically the minimum above-ground blade tip height, and the hub height) for Vansycle II wind turbines, if repowered. RFA7 is being processed under Type B review and therefore does not include a public hearing or opportunity to request a contested case on the proposed order. The Council will review the Proposed Order on Request for Amendment 7 at the June 23-24, 2022 Council meeting, as described in the public notice below.

Pursuant to the terms of the Wildlife Monitoring and Mitigation Plan, ongoing wildlife monitoring reports for this facility will be made available for public review and comment. Results of 2021 wildlife monitoring, as reported in April 2022, are provided below.

The deadline for submitting comments on the 2021 wildlife monitoring report is July 30, 2022. Please submit comments to Kathleen Sloan at kathleen.sloan@energy.oregon.gov.
