First Wind
Milford Wind stretches through the desert of southern Utah, just north of the town of Milford. The combined 306 MW facility was developed in two phases and is the largest operational utility-scale wind farm in Utah… Phase 1, completed in November of 2009, is situated predominantly in Beaver County and consists of 97 operational wind turbines – a mix of 1.5 MW 2.5 MW machines – with a maximum capacity of 204 MW. The second phase of the project, completed in May of 2011 mostly in Millard County, added 102 MW from 68 turbines. First Wind is exploring further development opportunities for harnessing the excellent wind resource in the extensive Milford valley. (Source)
