California is FINALLY getting it!!
Construction on the biggest U.S. transmission project largely for wind energy has begun, utility Southern California Edison said on Friday.
The Tehachapi Renewal Transmission Project aims to take wind power produced in a remote area called Tehachapi in Southern California to power customers all over the state through the state power grid.
If the full project is finished by 2013 as planned, it will be capable of carrying 4,500 megawatts of electricity, much of it from turbines in the windy Tehachapi area of northern Los Angeles County and eastern Kern County. That is enough power to serve about 3 million California homes, said Southern California Edison, a subsidiary of Edison International.
This is where it is at folks!!! This is such great news because FINALLY they are realizing “Hey we can send the wind energy ANYWHERE..”
Sure it will be expensive, several billion to complete but if we weren’t BLOWING UP IRAQ for no reason we could do a lot more of this!!
