SeaWest WindPower, Inc. (San Diego, CA) and PG&E National Energy Group have announced that two new wind projects, Mountain View Power Partners I and II, are now online in California. With a total capacity of 66.6 MW, the wind installations will produce enough power for more than 40,000 households. The projects are located near the San Gorgonio Pass in the Palm Springs area, a wind resource area that has been producing wind power since the early 1980s. The California Department of Water Resources will buy the power from the projects under a long-term contract.
