The following outline provides a summary for Cannon’s current wind projects.
Wind Point/Windy Flats
Windy Point/Windy Flats represents one of the largest wind energy projects in the United States, as a 90 square-mile wind farm spanning 35 miles along the Columbia River ridgeline.
Location: Goldendale, Washington Groundbreaking Date: 2008
Project Size and Generation: Windy Point/Windy Flats will displace over 800 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually, equivalent to roughly one million driven miles. Upon completion, the project will generate 500 MW enough clean energy to power over 250,000 homes.

Baja California Wind & Solar Projects
About: a planned series of utility-scale wind and solar projects located in the heart of the Baja California Renewable Energy Corridor, expected to generate a strong source of clean power to export cross-border into the California (U.S.) market.
Location: Baja California, Mexico near the town of La Rumorosa
Project Size and Generation: Cannon expects to develop 300-500 MW of clean renewable power at the site.
Off-Takers: Power is expected to be sold cross-border to California/United States customers.
Regional Impacts: The project has potential to provide clean power to many California/United States households and help improve overall air quality in the region.
Lucerne Valley Solar Project
Location: San Bernardino County (north of Palm Springs), California
Groundbreaking Date: Pending - Land rights have been obtained and permitting process is underway.
Project Size and Generation: Expected to yield 750+ megawatts
Off-Takers: Will serve the California market, producing enough clean electricity for over 250,000 households per year.
Croatia Wind Project
Location: Three European locations
Groundbreaking Date: Power sales contract with government currently being finalized. Operation will soon be underway.
Project Size and Generation: Expected to yield 300 megawatts.
