Western Wind EnergyWestern Wind Energy is supplying energy for new wind turbines that will be erected in Tehachapi, California. The energy company has announced that negotiations to deliver up to 120 MW of wind energy turbine generators in both the Mega watt and Multi Mega watt class are underway with several major wind turbine manufacturers.

Delivery is anticipated in late 2008 and commissioning is anticipated in early 2Q 2009. Windstar has received a construction permit number from Kern County and Western Wind has completed all archeological, biological, soils analysis and visual impact studies with a conclusion of “no significant impact”. Windstar is located within a project area of over 5,000 wind turbine generators delivering an annual output of 1.4 billion kilowatt hours from over 700 MW of nameplate capacity.
