LA GRANDE, Ore. (AP) -- Horizon Wind Energy is seeking a permit to build a second wind farm in Union County.

The Observer newspaper reports the Houston, Texas, company plans to build the Antelope Ridge Wind Farm on a 47,000-acre site about 10 miles southeast of La Grande.

Horizon opened the 105-megawatt Elkhorn Valley wind farm at Telocaset in August 2007.

The new facility planned for the Craig Mountain area between Highway 237 and Interstate 84 would generate 300 megawatts of electricity.

Horizon hopes to complete the latest project by December 2011.
