RET Capital bought the project, which uses 34 Vestas V90-3.0MW turbines, from BAIF US Renewable Power Holdings in July, engaging Vestas as a "service provider plus" for the facility.

Vestas will now serve as the on-site asset manager, with responsibility for surveillance, responding to curtailment requests and reporting to power purchaser Pacific Gas & Electric.

The agreement also sees Vestas take over responsibility for the maintenance of balance-of-plant electrical and meteorological equipment, and wildlife and vegetation management.

"The wind industry is evolving with the entry of financial investors seeking dependable cash flows from smoothly operating projects employing mature technology," said Chris Brown, president of Vestas’ US and Canada sales division.

"As the industry changes, Vestas is changing with it."
