UTILITY BACKS OUT

One of the three Northwest utilities involved in a 50 MW Kenetech wind plant in the Columbia Hills has pulled out. Puget Sound Power & Light backed out in late December because it could not keep to the project timetable, says the utility's Melanie Granfors. "We are committed to cost-effective renewables but our timetable was slower and could not match the other utilities." These are PacifiCorp and Portland General Electric. Kenetech's Bud Grebey says construction for the plant will still start in the middle of this year, with the project finished in mid 1996. Kenetech also hopes to expand the project to 100 MW.
