Agua Caliente Band announces plan to erect wind turbines

The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians of California announced plans for a wind farm.

The tribe plans to erect two wind turbines on 83 acres of its land near a major interstate. The blades on the 265 foot-tall turbines will span 451 feet at their highest position, making them the tallest structures in the area.

“The public will have a chance to comment on the environmental document during a 30-day public review period in the fall,” spokesperson Alva Johnson told The Palm Springs Desert Sun.

The turbines will generate enough power for 2,000 homes.
