Posted by Admin | December 3rd, 2009

PG&E is a very successful utility company, their full name being Pacific Gas & Electric Co. They announced today that they intend to purchase a large wind-generating farm in Southern California. Since PG&E is based in San Francisco, the wind-generating farm is located nearby.

PG&E bought the company from the U.S. branch of Iberdrola Renovables, Inc., a Spanish renewable energy company. The project is called the Manzana Wind Project is expected to generate up to 246 megawatts of power. As the first wind project PG&E has worked on, it indicates an openness towards alternative energy sources. Apparently this wind-farm will have the ability to fuel over 100,000 California homes per year–an incredible sum.
