Palouse Wind Project gets permit

The proposed Palouse Wind Project has received a conditional use permit, moving it one step closer to generating as much as 195 megawatts of electricity sometime next year.

An independent hearing examiner hired by Whitman County granted the permit one month after completion of a final environmental impact statement.

The permit would allow the construction near Oakesdale of 65 wind turbines with the capacity to generate 195 megawatts of power. The project could tie into a nearby Avista Corp. transmission line.

Construction would create 100 jobs, operations as many as 10, project owner First Wind said. The company- has wind projects in the Northeast, West and Hawaii.
