Windy Point Project Creates Substantial Employment in Klickitat County, Washington
San Diego, CA – Cannon Power reported today that construction to date of Cannon’s Windy Point wind project has created substantial local employment in Klickitat County, Washington.
“So far, the Windy Point Phase I project has provided over 20 direct jobs. We are also using over 27 local subcontractors and an additional 23 local vendors,” said Monkhouse. “We expect this will continue and substantially accelerate as we go forward with all our phases,” he noted.
“Cannon has a long-time commitment to using as many local people, subcontractors and vendors as possible when we build our projects. We want to keep as much of the investment in the local community as we can. We believe this is very important.”
Monkhouse projected that Phase I will inject many millions of dollars into the local economy from project construction alone.
The 136.6 MW Windy Point Phase I project is the first of a total of 500 MW Cannon expects to construct in the County over the next three years.
