Iberdrola says it has commissioned three new wind farms in the U.S. The three wind power facilities – the Manzana, Groton and Hoosac wind projects – have a combined capacity of over 265 MW.
The 189 MW Manzana wind project is located in a very windy area of Kern County, Calif., close to the towns of Rosamond and Tehachapi. The wind farm is equipped with 126 GE 1.5 MW turbines.
The 48 MW Groton wind farm is located in the town of Groton in Grafton County, N.H., and consists of 24 Gamesa G87 wind turbines. Finally, the 28.5 MW Hoosac wind farm is located in the municipalities of Florida and Monroe, Mass., and is equipped with 19 GE 1.5 MW wind turbines.
With these wind farms online, Iberdrola's installed wind power capacity in the U.S. now exceeds 5.7 GW.
