Stoel Rives attorney Elaine Albrich was quoted by The East Oregonian regarding the Umatilla County (Oregon) Board of Commissioners' decision to revise the County's wind power siting guidelines to require a two mile setback between a wind turbine and a city urban growth boundary, rural residence or roadway. In testimony before the board, Albrich had argued on behalf of wind energy developers for inclusion of a setback waiver option in the final siting provisions.

"While we understand the board had a difficult decision to make, we are disappointed in the outcomes and the process," she said. "The impacts of the code amendment will vary from project to project but overall I can anticipate less economic development in the county from renewable energy development."

"The future of wind development" was published by The East Oregonian, July 1, 2011.
