EDF Renewable Energy has announced that the 140 MW Pacific Wind Project, located in Kern County, Calif., is operational and supplying electricity to the regional transmission grid.

Consisting of REpower MM92 turbines, Pacific Wind generates electricity to supply approximately 56,000 customers with renewable energy, EDF says. The developer has entered into a 20-year power purchase agreement with San Diego Gas and Electric Co. (SDG&E) for the project's generation.

"SDG&E is pleased that the Pacific Wind project is now generating renewable energy to the electric grid, providing our customers with clean energy," says Matt Burkhart, vice president of electric and fuel procurement for SDG&E. "We look forward to continuing to work with EDF Renewable Energy on vital renewable energy projects that will help push California closer to its 33 percent renewable energy goal."
