Campo Band hosts commercial wind turbine farm

Work on the largest capacity wind turbine farm in the nation is underway on the Campo Reservation in southern California.

The Campo Band of Kumeyaay Indians is hosting an $80 million farm with 25 turbines. Each of the turbines has the capacity to generate up to 2 megawatts of electricity, making it the largest in the U.S., officials said.

The tribe will receive fees and royalties in a 20-year agreement with San Diego Gas & Electric. The turbines are slated to go online in November.
