Herman Trabish, of New Energy News, covered the groundbreaking of a new wind energy installation in the Tehachapi Wind Resource Area in California’s Mojave Desert.

“The Tehachapi Wind Resource Area has been a major wind power generating region since the early 1980s when a visionary group of California New Energy pioneers began building utility-scale wind projects in the Altamont Pass near San Francisco, the San Gorgonio Pass near Palm Springs and the Tehachapi Mountains.”

Herman’s also posted a cool video that shows turbines going up out East.
