WASCO, OR – NOVEMBER 16: The sun sets beyond a turbine in the recently completed Klondike II wind farm, expected to produce enough electricity to power about 26,400 homes a year, November 16, 2005 near Wasco, Oregon. The plant consists of 50 1.5-megawatt wind turbines, and is located on 6,400 acres of farmland. The land is leased by eight local landowners, who continue to use the land for farming. The new wind power plant represents Oregon’s continued support of the development of renewable energy. ()
