Alterra Power Corp. has aquired Jawbone, a 40 MW wind development project in Kern County, California.
Alterra acquired the project from Jawbone Wind Energy LLC, which is principally owned by Philip and Daniel Rudnick, who will continue to work with Alterra to complete development of the project. Alterra also began construction of the Project's main power transformer in 2016, and expects the project to qualify for federal production tax credits at the full rate.
“We're extremely pleased to acquire Jawbone, representing one of the few viable opportunities to build new wind generation in California,” said John Carson, CEO of Alterra. “We expect to contract the facility over the next twelve months, and begin delivering power in 2020."
