Please select one option below and then submit your answer. Thanks for helping us choose the name!Huntington Wind Power: the project itself is located near Huntington, Oregon. Huntington was named for J.B. and J.M. Huntington, brothers who purchased Miller's Stagecoach Station, the primary shipping point for the cattle country to the south, in 1882. This is the project's current name, but it has a nice ring to it. Burnt River Wind: The Burnt River, a 98-mile-long tributary of the Snake River, enters the Snake near Huntington. Blue Rail Power: In 1884, the rails of the Oregon Short Line and the Oregon Railroad and Navigation Company line were joined in Huntington, making it a prime place for commerce, from mining to moving cattle. The name merges the area's railroad history with the Blue Sky program.
