Nestle says it has installed two utility-scale wind turbines on the site of its Nestle Waters North America (NWNA) bottling plant in Cabazon, Calif.

The two GE 1.6 MW turbines provide approximately 30% of the electricity needed to power the facility, which produces the company's Arrowhead and Nestle Pure Life brand bottled waters.

NWNA says it chose this location for the turbines because of its high wind potential. NWNA partnered with the Morongo Band of Mission Indians and Foundation Windpower to site, host and commission the wind turbines.

Foundation Windpower installed the turbines and will operate and own them, as well as their associated environmental attributes. NWNA will purchase the power produced directly and receive renewable energy credits from Foundation Windpower.
