President Barack Obama has revoked a Chinese company's purchase of four wind farm projects in Oregon near a U.S. naval facility's restricted airspace.

In a Sept. 28 order, Obama directed Ralls Corp., a company owned by Chinese nationals, to divest its interest in the wind farms it purchased earlier this year, which are all in the vicinity of air space near the Naval Weapons Systems Training Facility Boardman.
