Blue Basin Power (formerly Ewauna Solar) is a multi-phased 4 MW (DC) solar photovoltaic project located in Klamath County, Oregon. Construction for Phase I (~1 MW) is complete and the project has been operational since April 2016. Phase II (~3 MW) will be constructed and online by the end of 2017.
Sited on just over 20-acres of previously disturbed land zoned for industrial use, the construction of a solar facility is the perfect low-impact project for this site. Annually, the project is expected to generate approximately 7,300 MWh of clean electricity and will feed Pacific Power’s Blue Sky renewable energy program. Blue Basin Power’s multi-phased projects are financed and owned by Solar City and have executed power purchase agreements with Pacific Power.
The Blue Basin project has already gained well deserved national recognition. The 2016 Green Power Leadership Award was awarded to Pacific Power for its innovative Usage and Habitat product, which played a critical role in Blue Basin Power’s development success.
