To RECEIVE COMMENTS
and CONSIDER WIND RIDGE POWER PARTNER’S REQUEST to
TRANSFER CONTROL of the WILD HORSE WIND POWER PROJECT to PSE

Request to Transfer Wild Horse Wind Power Project Site Certification Agreement to PSE

In a letter dated August 4, 2005, Wind Ridge Power Partners LLC (Wind Ridge) and Puget Sound Energy (PSE) requested that the Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council (EFSEC or Council) transfer control of the Wild Horse Wind Power Project (WHWPP) Site Certification Agreement (SCA) to PSE.  If approved by EFSEC, the transfer of control to PSE would trigger technical amendments to the SCA to formally recognize the change in ownership and commitments made by the new owner to comply with all conditions of the existing SCA.

August 30, 2005: EFSEC Special Meeting and Informational Hearing

As indicated above, on August 30, 2005, starting at 1:00 p.m., EFSEC will conduct a special meeting at the Hal Holmes Community Center in Ellensburg, Washington to:

  1. Provide an opportunity for the public to obtain information on the request for transfer;
  2. Hear public comments on the request to transfer from citizens, stakeholders, and interested persons or organizations; and
  3. Consider the information regarding the transfer before the Council and act on Wind Ridge’s request to transfer control of the WHWPP to PSE and amend the SCA pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 463-66 WAC.

We invite all interested persons to attend and participate in this meeting.
