Brookfield Renewable Energy Partners LP has announced that its 102 MW wind farm, located in Tehachapi, Calif., has achieved commercial operation.

Brookfield Renewable and its institutional partners increased their 50% interest in the project to 100% in January, and now own 274 MW of operating wind generating capacity in the Tehachapi region.

All power produced from the project will be sold under a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with a large, local utility. The wind farm is expected to produce enough renewable energy annually to power more than 26,000 U.S. homes, according to the company.

In addition to the PPA, the project has also secured financing and an interconnection agreement.
