When you flip on your light switch at home, do you ever think about where that electricity came from? Energy facilities like wind farms and power plants are spread out among our communities, producing energy to keep our state running.
The birth of an energy facility – and its lifespan – is dependent on a governor-appointed body by called the Energy Facility Siting Council. Their complex work is supported by staff at the Oregon Department of Energy.
On this week’s episode of Grounded, ODOE Siting Division Administrator Todd Cornett gives us an energy facility siting 101 lesson.
