Oregon Senator Ron Wyden will hold a news conference on Friday, Jan. 11, on the completion of upgrades at the Ponderosa substation near Prineville, followed by town hall meetings in Sisters, Prineville and Madras.

The Bonneville Power Administration and PacifiCorp have been completing upgrades to the Ponderosa Substation in near Prineville necessary to provide needed electrical power to the Facebook and Apple data centers (server farms) that have located in Central Oregon.
