Installed capacity of 198-megawatts of renewable energy

Project overview

Rising Tree Wind Farm consists of three phases and is located in Kern County, approximately three miles west of the town of Mojave. The wind farm is within the Tehachapi Wind Resource Area, the same site as a few of the earliest wind farms in the United States. Local winds are fueled by cooler air from the San Joaquin Valley rushing through Tehachapi Pass to fill low pressure voids caused by heating in the Mojave Desert.
