Wind Farm in Butte County Sold to California Company

Pattern Development, a California-based company, agreed to purchase the Willow Creek wind energy project, according to the Black Hills Pioneer. Pattern Development operates wind farms in other locations across the United States as well as China, Chile and Japan.

The wind farm, which spans across 20,000 acres of ranch land, is estimated to cost $210 million and projected to produce 450,000 megawatt hours of electricity annually. Approximately 45 turbines will be placed on the farm, which will produce enough energy to power 40,000 homes.
