Windy Point Phase I Construction Commences (136.6 MW)
San Diego, CA – Cannon Power Group announced today the commencement of construction of the first phase of its Windy Point wind project. The Phase will consist of 42 Siemens 2.3 MW turbines and 20 REpower 2.0 MW turbines for a total capacity of 136.6 MW.
“Cannon is very pleased to formally kick off construction of Windy Point Phase I,” said Gary Hardke, President of Cannon Power Group.
“We’ve gotten a good head start up to this point on road construction and some other civil work, but the heavy construction activity will now begin in earnest. We are hoping to have most of the turbines in Phase I erected along with the project substations and the on-site transmission line by the end of December, depending on weather conditions.”
Mr. Hardke also noted that the construction financing for the project had recently closed.
The 136.6 MW project is being constructed by Cannon Power Construction Co., a Cannon affiliate.
Windy Point Phase I, a 136.6 MW project, is the initial phase of a 500 MW wind project Cannon Power is constructing at this Klickitat County site.
