San Francisco-based Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E) has entered into a long-term agreement with Hatchet Ridge Wind LLC, a subsidiary of Babcock & Brown, to purchase up to 103 MW of wind energy. The project is expected to generate up to 303 GWh of energy annually.
The Hatchet Ridge Wind Project will be located on a portion of Hatchet Mountain in Burney, Calif. Deliveries are expected to begin by Dec. 31, 2009.
‘We look forward to working together with PG&E to create a new, homegrown and sustainable source of carbon-free energy in northern California,’ says Hunter Armistead, head of Babcock & Brown's North American renewable energy group.
