State issues project order for Boardman Solar Energy Facility

The Oregon Energy Facility Siting Council has expedited its review of a 75-megawatt solar farm west of Boardman.

State permitting is underway on the western edge of Morrow County for what may become Oregon’s largest solar farm.

Invenergy LLC, a development company based in Chicago, has proposed building the Boardman Solar Energy Facility, a sprawling 600-acre array that would generate roughly 75 megawatts of electricity. If approved, the project would increase overall solar energy production statewide by nearly 30 percent.
