Based on our current discussions with our turbine supplier and Engineering Procurement and Construction team ("EPC"), Western Wind is anticipating start of construction to be August 1, 2010 and the Commercial Operations Date ("COD") to be March 1, 2011.
Western Wind is transmitting the energy through the already built and privately owned Sagebrush and Wilderness Lines and therefore, does not require the usage of soon-to-be-built, transmission projects.
Western Wind Energy Corp. is a vertically integrated renewable energy electrical production company that currently owns over 500 wind turbines with 34.5 MW of rated capacity and a further 131MW of expansion power purchase agreements in the States of California and Arizona.
