The Locust Ridge Wind Farm, located in Schuylkill County, Pa., is now fully commissioned - to mark the occasion, Gov. Edward Rendell, D-Pa., has dedicated the project.

"This is an exciting day for Pennsylvania," says Rendell. "This project shows the kind of growth we can achieve by committing ourselves to clean and renewable energy, and by making the strategic investments necessary to attract leading companies that create quality jobs for our men and women."

The wind farm is owned by Iberdrola and was developed by its affiliate, Community Energy Inc., the governor's office says. Gamesa constructed the 13 turbines at the wind farm, which will produce 68,328 MWh per year - enough electricity to power more than 6,500 average homes each year.
