200-MW of Milford Wind Project Completed

This week, First Wind announced the completion of the first phase of its Milford Wind Corridor project. Located in Millard and Beaver County, Utah, the first phase of the project has a capacity of 203.5 megawatts (MW), making it the largest renewable energy facility in Utah.

Featuring 97 total wind turbines including 58 Clipper Liberty 2.5-MW wind turbines and 39 GE 1.5-MW turbines, the first phase of the project was managed by RMT Inc. Construction on the 203 MW first phase of the Milford Wind Corridor project began nearly a year ago in November 2008.

The project created more than 250 development and construction jobs, and First Wind directly spent about $30 million with Utah-based businesses developing and building the first phase of the project and another $56 million in indirect spending such as wages, taxes and more.

“This is a momentous occasion for First Wind. Today’s commissioning is an opportunity to recognize everyone who helped us successfully develop and complete this significant source of clean, wind energy,” said Paul Gaynor, CEO of First Wind. “Commercial operations of the Milford Wind Corridor project were made possible through the support of the US Department of Interior’s Bureau of Land Management, the state of Utah, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, the Southern California Public Power Authority, Burbank Water and Power, Pasadena Water & Power, RMT and the people of Millard and Beaver Counties, many of whom have joined us for today’s ribbon-cutting.”

The Milford Wind Corridor is the first wind energy facility permitted under the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Wind Energy Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Western US states. In December 2007, First Wind completed a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Southern California Public Power Authority (SCPPA), on behalf of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) and the cities of Burbank and Pasadena.
