Washington Governor Inslee, First Wind and Avista Celebrate Milestone at Palouse Wind Farm

First Wind, an independent U.S.-based renewable energy company, and Avista today commemorated the generation of 150,000 megawatt hours (MWh) by the Palouse Wind project since its start of commercial operations in December 2012.

Since the Palouse Wind project went online, it has brought significant long-term tax revenue to Whitman County while generating enough clean energy to power the homes of about 30,000 Avista customers.

Governor Jay Inslee joined industry and community leaders to celebrate the successful operation of First Wind
