Siemens will maintain 132 of its SWT-2.3-93 turbines at the Harvest Wind and White Creek I wind projects in Washington State.
Summit Power helped to develop the projects for the owners. The 98.9MW Harvest Wind project, is owned by a group of utility firms; Lakeview Green Energy, Eugene Water & Electric Board, Peninsula Light and Cowlitz Public Utility District (PUD). It has been in operation since 2009.
White Creek I is a 204.7MW project owned by White Creek Wind I, LLC and was commissioned in 2007. The project was set up by the Tanner Electric Cooperative, Lakeview Light & Power, Cowlitz PUD and Klickitat County PUD.
The project was then sold to White Creek Wind I LLC, managed by Summit, in order for project to have access to the PTC. In return the utilities arranged a power pre-pay arrangement to purchase the electricity for below market price.
