San Jacinto Power Co will own and re-develop 69 turbines previously owned by Smith Wind Energy Corp and Triad Limited Partnership. The wind farm operates under a 19 MW power purchase agreement with Southern California Edison. Nevada Energy Co, a geothermal company in Reno, announced in January 1993 a letter of intent with Smith and Triad for the $18 million project.
