Caithness Energy has announced that its Shepherds Flat Wind Farm is operational and generating up to 845 MW of wind energy.

Located in northeastern Oregon near the town of Arlington, the project will produce an estimated 2 billion kWh annually, according to the company. The project's output is contracted through 20-year power purchase agreements with Southern California Edison (SCE).

According to Caithness, the project was a collaboration between the public and private sectors, including partners GE Energy Financial Services, Google, Tyr Energy and Sumitomo Corp. of America, as well as Oregon's elected officials. Shepherds Flat was one of the first clean energy projects to utilize the U.S. Department of Energy's loan guarantee program, the company adds.
