Allco Wind Energy, a wind project developer and division of Allco Finance Group's infrastructure division, has commenced construction of the 24 MW Alite Wind Farm. Alite is the first phase of the Alta Wind Energy Center that is under development by Alta Innovative Power Co. LLC, a joint venture between Allco Wind Energy and Oak Creek Energy Systems Inc. (See "Vestas To Supply Wind Turbines For Tehachapi Project.")

"The Alite Wind Farm in Tehachapi is the first and a significant step towards the overall execution of our strategy for Tehachapi," says Steen Stavnsbo, Allco Wind Energy's global head. "It also demonstrates our commitment and capabilities in delivering to those plans."

According to the company, once Alite is operational, which is expected to be by October 2007, it will supply energy to California Portland Cement's cement mining and manufacturing facility in Mojave, Calif., on a net-metered basis.
