Under Review. On September 22, 2023, the Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE or Department) received a Notice of Intent to File an Application for a Site Certificate for the Umatilla-Morrow County Connect Project (proposed facility).
The Department requests public comments on the NOI to help identify issues and areas of concern that should be addressed in the full application. Comments must be submitted by 5:00 PM Pacific Time (PT) on December 1, 2023 to be considered.
ODOE has an online portal for submitting public comments. The goal of the online portal is to provide members of the public with another convenient option to participate in Council rulemaking proceedings.
To comment on this project, select “Umatilla-Morrow County Connect Project " from the drop-down menu and follow the instructions. You will receive an email confirmation after submitting your comment.
