Project Info

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.

Phase I (Windy Point/137 megawatts)
Phase II (Windy Flats/262 megawatts)
Phase III Currently suspended

Off-Takers: 
Phase I - Tuolumne Wind Project Authority—a California joint powers agency formed by the Turlock Irrigation District and the Walnut Energy Center Authority
Phase II - The Southern California Public Power Authority (SCPPA)
Phase III- Currently suspended

Job Total: 350 jobs over the past two years
Project Cost and Financing: The combined project cost to date is over $1 billion
Partners: The Maryhill Museum of Art; Siemens

Mexico Wind Projects 

About: Cannon is collaborating with Mexico Power Group on a planned series of utility-scale wind projects located in various states in Mexico, expected to generate a strong source of clean power in the newly reformed Mexican energy market. Mexico Power Group was spun off from the Cannon organization in 2011 and is operated as a separate entity.  

Locations: Zacatecas, Baja California, and other states in Mexico. 

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.
