Bellevue, Wash.-based Puget Sound Energy (PSE), the wholly owned utility subsidiary of Puget Energy, has completed Washington state's largest utility-owned wind power facility.

The 229 MW Wild Horse Wind Project in Kittitas County began commercial operation for PSE customers in late December. The wind farm's 127 turbines are generating enough wind energy to serve approximately 76,000 of the utility's electric customers, the company says.

Together with the Hopkins Ridge Wind Project that PSE built in 2005 near Dayton in southeast Washington, Wild Horse makes PSE the largest producer of renewable energy in the Pacific Northwest, the company says. Wild Horse and the 83-turbine Hopkins Ridge wind farm, combined, can meet the power needs of roughly 125,000 households.
