Alta Wind Energy Center (AWEC) will be the world’s largest wind power farm with its 1.550 MW. It will be located in the Tehachapi-Mojavi region (about 100 miles north of urban Los Angeles, U.S.) The wind farm is being developed by Terra-Gen Power and will consist of 300 turbines manufactured by Vestas. This Mega-project will replace the current “largest wind farm” which is in Texas (Roscoe Wind Farm).
The company in charge of this project is Terra-Gen Power, which primarily sells the output of the renewable energy projects to load serving entities under long-term power purchase agreements. In this case, Southern California Edison has agreed to a 25-year power purchase agreement for the power producer. The project is planned to finish in 2011.
