PacifiCorp announced it will develop a huge solar array in Lake County, yet another large-scale renewable energy project for Eastern Oregon.

PacifiCorp officials say the Black Cap project, which will be installed a few miles from downtown Lakeview, will be the largest utility-leased solar facility in the state. It will produce enough electricity to meet the annual needs of about 400 average PacifiCorp residential customers and will count toward the utilities obligations to produce 25 percent of its power from renewable sources by 2025 under the state's renewable portfolio standard.
Portland-based Obsidian Finance Group will develop the project and PaciCorp will own the project rights and the land under the solar panels. The utility will lease the equipment including 9,000 solar panels mounted on a motorized tracking system designed to follow the sun's path across the sky.
