Western Wind Energy Completes Wind Farm at Windstar

Western Wind Energy is pleased to announce that on January 4th, 2012, it had erected the last and final wind turbine at its Windstar Wind Power Project, Tehachapi, California, bringing the total installed wind turbines capacity to the 120 Megawatt design capacity.

Regarding the negotiations for a new acquisition in the southern United States, we can report that the area to mention is Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico remains dependent for 2/3 of its electrical energy production on burning crude oil. Western Wind expects to become a significant player in Puerto Rico and provide long term clean energy solutions to Puerto Rican residents offering energy independence and price stability.

Jeff Ciachurski, President of Western Wind Energy states, "this is a proud moment for Western Wind stakeholders in achieving the completion of the final turbine at Windstar."
