EDP Renewables North America (EDPR) has asked regulators to withdraw its siting application for the Antelope Ridge wind farm, a 300 MW project the company had proposed in Oregon.

According to a report in The Oregonian, EDPR's Antelope project manager, Sam Littlefield, said the move was a business decision due to low demand. The developer said the permitting process would be too expensive, especially without a power purchase agreement in hand. Although EDPR recently took part in Portland General Electric’s competitive bid for renewables, the Antelope Ridge project did not win.

“There's no active procurement in Oregon or Washington that this project would have been eligible for," Littlefield explained. However, he noted EDPR may revisit development plans for the Antelope Ridge project if demand returns.
