Turbines going up on Southeastern Wash. windfarm


Puget Sound Energy says the first of 149 wind-powered turbines was installed Friday at the Lower Snake River Wind Project in Garfield County in Southeastern Washington.

The turbines are 430-feet tall and each rotor is 331 feet in diameter.

The Bellevue-based utility says when it's complete the wind farm will generate enough electricity for 100,000 homes.

PSE also operates two other wind farms -- Hopkins Ridge and Wild Horse.
