LADWP's Develops Plans for Wind Farm

LCG, Sept. 19, 2003--A wind farm proposed by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power that would be made up of 80 1.5-megawatt turbines would be the largest such project of its kind to be owned by a municipal utility.

The area over which the farm would be built covers 22,000 acres in Kern County, east of Los Angeles. Discussions have taken place with representatives from two nearby air bases concerning the height of any turbines that might be built. Edwards Air Force Base and the Naval Air Weapons Station, in China Lake, both have flight tests in Kern County and are engaged in some planning efforts with the county's planning department.

The wind farm, which LADWP hopes to build by the spring of 2005, would be linked to the rest of the electric network by a 6-mile transmission line. The director of system planning and projects for LADWP, John Schumann, has responded to concerns expressed by a local Sierra Club chapter about the visual impact of such a wind farm by saying that the developer Wind Turbine Prometheus LLC selected the location. The environmental group would have preferred that modernization be undertaken at wind farms in nearby Tehachapi first.
