PPM Energy, a subsidiary of Iberdrola Renewables, has sold all the output of its 99 MW Pebble Springs Wind Power Project before breaking ground. The Pebble Springs project, located in Gilliam County, Ore., is expected to begin construction in the spring.

"With this transaction, PPM will now provide approximately 230 MW to Southern California Public Power Authority (SCPPA) members from wind farms in California, Wyoming and now Oregon, bringing more jobs, lease payments and tax revenues to Gilliam County," says Terry Hudgens, CEO of PPM Energy.

The Los Angeles City Council in December approved a long-term power purchase agreement, developed between SCPPA, of which the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) is the largest member, and Pebble Springs Wind LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of PPM Energy.

SCPPA member agencies, including LADWP and the cities of Burbank and Glendale, will receive the entire energy output of the new wind farm. LADWP will receive 68.7 MW and the cities of Burbank and Glendale will be entitled to 10 MW and 20 MW, respectively.

The project will interconnect to the Bonneville Power Administration system through the Jones Canyon substation adjacent to the existing Leaning Juniper Wind Power Project.
