The Yamhill and Bellevue Solar Projects represent the largest ground-mounted solar PV installations to date in the Pacific Northwest as well as the first solar developments for EDF Renewables in the region.
EDF Renewables developed and built the Bellevue Solar Project with help from a variety of local labor. The Energy Trust of Oregon also played a critical role in making the projects a reality.
Portland General Electric purchases the power generated at the site under a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement. The energy generated by the project helps to diversify local farmers’ operations through lease payments, helping them to not only survive, but thrive.
