Construction of Cedar Point Wind is underway with commercial operation expected in 2011. Once completed, Cedar Point Wind could be the second largest wind project in Colorado.

“Cedar Point Wind will benefit Colorado in two ways - by supplying clean energy to Colorado homes under a 20-year power purchase agreement with Public Service Company of Colorado and by providing employment in the form of up to 200 new construction jobs with more jobs to follow once construction is complete,” says Martha Wyrsch, President of Vestas Americas.

Vestas recently opened three manufacturing facilities in Colorado to provide wind turbines for North American customers: a blades factory in Windsor, a nacelles-assembly factory in Brighton, and a towers manufacturing facility in Pueblo. A second wind turbine blades factory is planned for 2011 in Brighton.
