The announcement was made at the grand opening of the Red Cloud Wind Project in New Mexico, the largest and lowest cost wind farm in L.A. history  

NEW MEXICO — Mayor Eric Garcetti today announced the completion of the Red Cloud Wind Project, a major renewable energy agreement that will provide enough clean energy to power roughly 222,300 homes in Los Angeles and boost the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s (LADWP) clean energy portfolio by 6% — allowing the department to receive over 60% of its power from carbon-free sources this year.

“If we’re going to make this decade one of exponential climate action, we need more than just bold goals and lofty long-term promises — we need real solutions and results today,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “Bringing this state-of-the-art facility online makes it our largest wind project to date — providing clean energy for hundreds of thousands of Angelenos and bringing us one major step closer to becoming a city powered without fossil fuels.”
