Brookfield Renewable owns and operates one of the largest renewable platforms in the world. With 10,600 megawatts under operation, the company produces clean energy from hydro and wind facilities in seven countries across North America, South America and Europe.
In North America, the Brookfield Renewable fleet consists of 170 hydroelectric facilities and 10 wind farms, with an installed capacity of 5,900 megawatts. That's enough energy to power two million homes.
In Southern California, Brookfield Renewable owns and operates five wind farms that generate enough renewable energy to power nearly 135,000 homes. The wind farms are located in the communities of Mojave and outside of Palm Springs. If you have been on the 14 or 10 freeways, there is a good chance you saw Brookfield Renewable's wind turbines.
In addition to owning and operating facilities, Brookfield Renewable is also a project developer. The company is currently developing two solar projects in southern Virginia. Once completed, each project would generate up to 60 megawatts of clean energy. The projects will also bring jobs and economic investment into the small rural communities where they are located.
