SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A major wind power farm will be built in the Palouse this summer. Boston-based First Wind announced Tuesday that it will build 58 giant windmills between the town of Oakesdale and US 195. Each can produce 1.8 megawatts of electricity, for a total of 105 megawatts of power.
Officials said that was enough to serve 30,000 customers. The company has a 30-year agreement to sell the power to Avista, the Spokane-based utility that serves eastern Washington and northern Idaho.
First Wind said the windmills will only occasionally be visible from US 195.
