Did you know?

While Baker County doesn’t have any energy facilities that fall under Energy Facility Siting Council jurisdiction, the county does have a handful of small wind farms, visible from Interstate 84 near Lime. Two of the facilities have just five turbines each, but still produce about 2 MW of power.
