New York-based Terra-Gen Power LLC has closed a $115 million initial funding of a $140 million pre-construction financing used to fund the purchase of 100 1.5 MW GE SLE wind turbines. The wind turbines will be deployed in the development of the 150 MW Alta Wind I wind project in the Tehachapi, Calif., area.

Alta Wind I is owned by California Highwind Power, an affiliate of Terra-Gen Power and ArcLight Capital Partners LLC. Terra-Gen Power, an affiliate of ArcLight, is a developer of renewable energy focused on wind, geothermal and solar generation.
