Cemex wind turbine to produce 30 percent of quarry’s energy

By |  October 11, 2012

Cemex is commissioning a 1-megawatt wind turbine at its quarry located in Madison, Calif. The turbine is one of three renewable energy projects Cemex plans to soon bring online in California.

Cemex says the power generated from the wind turbine is equivalent to powering more than 200 average-sized U.S. households annually. The company expects the turbine to supply about 30 percent of the quarry’s energy.

Cemex partnered with Foundation Windpower, a California-based distributed wind development company, for the development, construction, financing and operation of the wind turbine.
