The Lompoc Wind Farm Project, a $120 million wind farm expected to generate up to 120 megawatts of electricity, is getting close to the ground breaking stage. The farm, which will consist of between 60-80 turbines, will be located onTranquillion Ridge about seven miles south of Lompoc, California.
While the proposed farm does have some detractors, even some groups that have raised objections over wind farms before seem to be supporting this one.
We are not totally against it,â€ said Tamarah Taaffe, treasurer of the La Purisima chapter of the Audubon Society. â€œWe just want it placed optimally. On any wind farm, placement is the most important thing. Our basic goal was to support it and work with them on placement.â€
