It's great to see some of the large wind farm projects that were just ideas a couple of years ago become reality. First Wind's Milford Wind Corridor project has just seen the completion of its first phase - 203.5 MW in Millard and Beaver Counties in Utah, the largest renewable energy facility in the state.
The wind farm consists of 97 turbines and will be able power 45,000 homes. Southern California Public Power Authority is purchasing all of the electricity generated over the next 20 years on behalf of the cities of Los Angeles, Pasadena and Burbank.
Construction on the wind farm began almost exactly a year ago. Over the next few years, the wind corridor will expand to include four more phases totaling over 1 GW of wind energy capacity.
