SoCal Edison Building Largest USA Wind Farm In Tehachapi Desert, Central California

Have you noticed how nearly every week we see a new "worlds largest" solar project announcement? Good stuff.

Southern California Edison announced today that it was breaking ground on a desert wind farm that could provide power for upwards of 3 million homes by 2013, predicting that it will be the largest wind transmission project in the country.

Officials estimate that the Tehachapi Renewal Project will eventually provide 4,500 megawatts of electricity. The project will harness the wind that blows through the Tehachapi Mountains about 100 miles north of Los Angeles.

Possibly California is 'breaking wind' at Arizona, Nevada,and Texas, all of which have recently announced "largest" solar projects of their own.
