Renewable Energy Siting in Oregon

Collaborative effort produces new guidance on renewable energy development in Oregon.

Oregon Natural Desert Association is pleased to join partners in offering new guidance on the resources and values that should be considered in siting solar and wind energy facilities in the state. Achieving Oregon’s clean energy goals may require expansive new development, including in Oregon’s iconic high desert. “Siting Renewable Energy in Oregon: Voluntary Guidelines Developed with Outreach and Engagement” recommends ways that developers and permitting jurisdictions can involve stakeholders in project decision-making, avoid and minimize impacts to conservation, cultural, historical and recreational values, and ensure development benefits local communities.

I love to travel and I love the desert! Supporting ONDA monthly allows me to hit the road without forgetting Oregon’s high desert—even when I’m not there.
