This is the largest municipally-owned wind power project in the U.S. Completed in less than two years, the project produces 135 megawatts (mw) of clean energy through 90 1.5-mw wind turbines and powers 56,000 households in the Los Angeles area. Kleinfelder led the geotechnical and geologic effort for this design-build project.
The Pine Tree Wind Farm Project is the biggest contributor to the City of Los Angeles’ goal to quadruple the amount of power coming from renewable energy sources. Kleinfelder’s aggressive rock mechanics approach to cut slope design and continuous oversight during construction substantially reduced costs and kept the project on schedule.
