ladwp.gifThe Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) Board of commissioners, the largest municipally owned utility in the nation, has just voted to approve funding for the Pine Tree Wind project, making it the largest wind system built in the Western U.S. since passage of the state’s Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard. The project’s new energy generation facility will provide up to 120 megawatts (MW) of wind power for the City of Los Angeles.
LA Mayor Jim Hahn states, “The Pine Tree Wind Project will be a powerful step toward achieving my goal of a 20 percent renewable power mix by 2017.” More in Sustainable Business dot com
