A major wind power installation, the Alta Wind Energy Center, recently broke ground in the Tehachapi Pass of the the Mojave Desert foothills. Although the project is scheduled to take years to complete, it has the potential to bring as much as 3,000 megawatts of power to an area just 75 miles from Los Angeles.
In this segment, we'll get the latest on that project, and on other solar and wind power projects in the US. What can be learned from the European renewable energy industry?
