Vancouver, B.C.-based Western Wind Energy has announced negotiations with several major wind turbine manufacturers for the delivery of up to 120 MW of nameplate wind turbine generators in the megawatt and multi-megawatt classes. The wind turbines will be deployed on Western Wind Energy's Windstar project in Tehachapi, Calif.
Delivery is anticipated in late 2008, and commissioning is anticipated in 2009. Windstar has received a construction permit number from Kern County, and Western Wind has completed all archeological, biological soils and visual impact studies.
Windstar is located within a project area of over 5,000 wind turbine generators, delivering an annual output of 1.4 billion kWh from over 700 MW of nameplate capacity.
