May 1999 - In March, Enron Wind Corp. broke ground on a new 22-turbine, 16.5-MW wind power project, which the company bills as "the first major new renewable power plant since California opened its markets to competition." The wind facility will generate enough power to serve 5,000 typical California households. The power will be sold through retail marketers to residential, commercial, and industrial customers, including Patagonia, which last summer became the first California business to announce that it would purchase 100% of its power from new wind energy.
