2Morrow Energy

Spanish wind energy manufacturer Gamesa and local wind developer Ella Wind LLC joined forces to propose the 2Morrow Wind Energy Project, a 104 megawatt wind farm in Morrow County, Oregon.  With Tonkon Torp's help navigating the local land use permitting process, the County issued the required permits in December 2011, but the County's decision was appealed by a local businessman to the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA).  Tonkon Torp's land use team so convincingly defended the permits in the respondent's brief on appeal that upon receipt of the brief, appellant's lawyer dismissed the appeal without first seeking a decision from LUBA.
