PSE, RES Americas to build new wind energy facilities in Washington
Puget Sound Energy (PSE) and RES Americas have begun preliminary studies in Columbia and Garfield counties for future wind energy development, which they believe will offer significant environmental and economic benefits. PSE and RES Americas have applied to the Bonneville Power Administration for up to 1,250MW of transmission interconnection to support potential future wind projects in southeast Washington. Craig Mataczynski, president of RES Americas, said: "RES Americas and PSE bring some unique strengths in developing wind energy projects. RES Americas has a great breadth of experience in design and construction across the US, while PSE has strong ties to the communities in which it operates."
