Bird issue delays decisions

Final negotiations for a short-listed 100 MW Kenetech project with Portland General Electric (PGE) in Umatilla County in Oregon are being slowed because of the birds issue. The negotiations are not proceeding as fast as hoped as several senior officials at PGE are "extremely concerned" about the birds question, says PGE's Frank Afranji. PGE received a letter from the US Fish & Wildlife Service stating they would be prosecuted if birds are killed. The short-listing was announced December 28 (Windpower Monthly, February 1994). Significantly PGE will also make a green pricing announcement within a few months, says Afranji.
