GE Wind Energy (Tehachapi, CA) will supply 80 wind turbines for a new, 120MW facility in California's Mojave Desert that will be the first wind project for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP), the nation's largest municipally owned utility. When completed in the summer of 2004, the Pine Tree Wind Project will produce clean, renewable electricity for LADWP customers.

The project is being developed by Wind Turbine Prometheus LLC, a partnership between Zilkha Renewable Energy LLC and Prometheus Energy Services LLC. Wind Turbine Prometheus will utilize GE's 1.5MW wind turbines. The machines will be installed on approximately 22,000 acres of land located 12 miles north of Mojave, CA.
