Cannon wind project progresses

Cannon Power Group, based in Carmel Valley, recently announced the closing of the sale of Phase I of its Windy Point/Windy Flats project in Goldendale, Wash., to Tuolumne Wind Project Authority, a California joint-powers agency formed by the Turlock Wind Project Irrigation District and Walnut Energy Center Authority.

The 136.6-megawatt wind energy project will be referred to as the Tuolumne Wind Project and will be one of the largest wind projects in the world with 26 contiguous miles of ridgelines along the Columbia River. It will cover 90 square miles. The project will likely be fully completed in 2010.

A news release from Cannon explained that the project’s anticipated capacity will be more than 500 megawatts of renewable energy with enough clean electricity for more than 250,000 households per year and will displace at least 800 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually.
