BPA is already buying or has under consideration about 300 MW of wind located in Wyoming, Oregon, Washington and Montana. The agency's George Darr says the solicitation is designed to encourage new projects beyond what has already been announced and all will likely be located in the Northwest. Siting and permitting will drive how fast many of the projects can come on-line, but Darr says the value of power will be greater for those projects that come on-line first. The solicitation closes April 6.
