New wind turbines are being installed at Puget Sound Energy's (PSE) Wild Horse Wind and Solar Facility in Washington. The 22 new turbines will add to the 127 turbines that entered service at Wild Horse in December 2006.

The $100 million Wild Horse expansion project was first announced in early 2008 and is expected to enter service late this year. The planned expansion will result in 149 turbines and a capacity of 273 MW at Wild Horse.

Initial construction on the Wild Horse expansion, including work on support roads, turbine foundations and underground cabling, began in April, with turbine installation expected to be completed by mid-August.

The expansion is taking place on 960 acres of undeveloped land PSE purchased in 2008 immediately to the north of the existing 9,150-acre Wild Horse site. The permanent footprint of new turbines, roads and support facilities will be approximately 3% of the total site area.
