The Oregon Energy Facility Siting Council has approved construction of what will be one of the world’s largest wind energy generation plants.

The Shepherd’s Flat Wind Farm, which stretches into both Gilliam and Morrow counties in north-central Oregon, is planning 303 wind turbines.  At peak capacity, the new plant will be capable of generating 909 megawatts, more than all other wind-generated plants operating in Oregon today (889 megawatts).  Until it is finished, the Horse Hollow wind farm will hold the title of largest operating wind farm in the United States, operating at 736 MW.  (Texas oil and gas magnate T. Boone Pickens has plans to build a wind farm in Texas by 2014 that would reach 4,000 MW.)

The project is being developed by Caithness Shepherds Flat, LLC of Sacramento, Calif.

My name is Bill Traughber, Business Development Manager for AlliedBarton Security Services. I am interested in discussing some physical securtity opportunities with you at your Shepherds Flat Wind Farm in Gilliam and Morrow Counties. We are currently providing 504 hours per week of security for Horizon Wind at their Arlington Wind Farm and are doing an incredible job of physical patrols and gate security at this facility. We would like the opportunity to discuss the same type of quality security for Shepherds Farm as well. Please contact me at the e-mail address above and we can arrange a meeting or phone discussion. Thanks you so much.
