The Project: Manzana Wind Power Project Creates Renewable Energy and Local Jobs

The Project: Manzana Wind Power Project Creates Renewable Energy and Local Jobs

In the wind-rich Tehachapi area near the town of Rosamond, California the 189-MW Manazana Wind Power Project, developed by Iberdrola Renewbles, generates electricity and sells it to San Diego Gas and Electric under a 20-year PPA. The project came online in 2012 and boasts 126 GE turbines. At the height of construction, when these photos were taken, the wind farm created 290 construction jobs. Minnesota-based Blattner Energy managed construction, with the majority of the work sub-contracted to local California companies. Today, there are twelve permanent Iberdrola Renewables operations and maintenance staff who run the facility and eight or nine additional contractors work for the facility while it is still under warranty.
