CANCELLED: Public Hearing on Jordan Cove energy plant: EFSC

  • The Mill Casino, Salmon Room East 3201 Tremont Ave North Bend, OR 97459 (map)

This event has been cancelled because Jordan Cove has pulled the application for an exemption, and will likely reapply at a later time.


The public is welcome to give public comment about the proposed Jordan Cove LNG export terminal on September 27th. Written and oral comments will be accepted at this meeting.

2:00-5:00 pm and 6:00 pm until finished, with a break for dinner.

The Oregon Energy Facility Siting Council (EFSC) is taking public comment on whether Jordan Cove LNG will receive a site certificate exemption for their proposed 90 megawatt power plant. Under Oregon law, any new power plant with generating capacity of 25 megawatts or more needs regulatory approval from the state EFSC, unless it is a "high efficiency co-generation facility." Jordan Cove LNG applied for the exemption. If the exemption is denied, Jordan Cove will need to apply for a siting certificate to build and operate their 90 megawatt power plant.

Fill the room to tell EFSC that Jordan Cove's energy generation plant does not meet the terms for an exemption, and that they need to go through the public review so that Oregon's voices can be heard!!

The Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE) staff recommend EFSC to deny the exemption. "Exemptions depend on meeting an efficiency threshold," the agency talking points say. "An engineering analysis of the proposed facility undertaken by ODOE found that the plant's fuel efficiency was not high enough."
