PALMDALE – Officials from wind power company Anywind Wind Power Electric, Inc. and the City of Palmdale gathered Tuesday to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the up-and-coming energy producer to manufacture its wind turbine systems in Palmdale.
“Today, Palmdale took a huge step forward in becoming a major player in the renewable energy market through this new opportunity with Anywind,” said Palmdale Mayor Jim Ledford. “Their goal is to be the world-class wind turbine total solution provider with salient blade, generator and inverter technology. Anywind couldn’t have picked a better place to build their innovative product than here in the Antelope Valley where the wind is a consistent natural resource.”
Using proven wind turbine technology to produce affordable renewable energy that is independent of subsidies, Anywind is a next generation total wind power system provider that offers solutions to meet both energy and environmental needs. Driving down the cost of wind power is their key target as they strive to make renewable energy independent of subsidies.
“Their product will be sold not only here in California, but throughout the country and the world,” said Palmdale’s Director of Economic Development and Communications Dave Walter. “It has great potential [to] generate hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars in revenue, while providing homeowners and businesses with a quality renewable source of electricity.”
Speaking on behalf of Anywind were chairman Manho Joung and Pishon Energy Chairman Dr. Byoung-Doo Lee. Pishon is the parent company of Anywind.
Anywind is establishing headquarters at 450 West Palmdale Blvd., and is looking to purchase the former Senior Systems Technology building, a 130,000 sq. ft. facility located at 600 Technology Drive, for its manufacturing.
