Expanding wind farm energy in Oregon
Having just finished Tom Friedman's Hot, Flat, and Crowded, I've been especially interested in the growing field of alternative energy technology.
John is a friend of my who lives in Oregon, and decided to take a trip out to a wind farm under construction in Hay Canyon. This is an international effort, including the involvement of parrent companies based in Spain and India.
This is from a press release describing the project:
Iberdrola Renewables (Portland, Oregon), formally known as PPM Energy, has started construction of the $170 million, 100-megawatt (MW) Hay Canyon windfarm near Wasco, Oregon. Iberdrola Renewables is a subsidiary of Iberdrola S.A. (MCE:IBE) (Bilbao, Spain).
Parts for these wind turbines are being supplied by Suzlon Energy, based in India.
John shot a series of videos that I'm posting on YouTube:
