The Rim Rock Wind Farm, located near Kevin, also announced commencement of commercial operations as of December 28th, 2012. The 189 MW Rim Rock Project is comprised of 126 Acciona AW77 1.5 MW wind turbines and is expected to generate enough energy each year to power the equivalent of nearly 60,000 homes.
