San Diego-based Cannon Power Group has completed the first phase of construction for its Windy Points/Windy Flats project in Goldendale, Wash. The company has also begun construction on Phase II.

Phase I included over 20 miles of roads, nine miles of transmission lines, two project substations, and foundations and installments of 42 2.3 MW Siemens wind turbines and 20 2 MW REpower wind turbines. Final project commissioning is expected next month.

Phase II will add another 21 miles of roads, 10 miles of transmission lines, two additional project substations, along with 88 2.3 MW Siemens wind turbines. The project is expected to be complete by 2010, according to Cannon Power Group.

The company projects that the project will provide over 150 local jobs for the next two years, including more than 20 direct jobs, 27 local subcontractors and an additional 23 local vendors, plus additional permanent administration, construction and operations jobs.

The capital investment in Klickitat County from the Windy Point/Windy Flats project is over $700 million for Phases I and II.

Two California off-takers are expected to purchase over 330 MW from Phase I and Phase II - including the Turlock Irrigation District for 136.6 MW of power from Phase I and another California entity for Phase II, with additional commitments expected, according to the company.
