CITY HALL — With strict state mandates on utilities bearing down, the city is expected to expand its renewable energy use under two multimillion-dollar wind power purchases the City Council will consider this afternoon. The council will review joint agreements with the Southern California Public Power Authority and the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power for two wind power projects — the Linden Wind Energy Power Project and the Windy Point/Windy Flats Project, both in Klickitat County, Washington.

GLENDALE — The city's water and power department has entered an agreement to purchase wind-powered electricity from a generating plant in Wyoming — a move officials said will provide enough energy to power 3,000 homes for 16 years. The Power Purchase Agreement, made with PPM Energy Inc., will transfer 10 megawatt shares of electricity generated by wind turbines from Wyoming to Glendale, officials said. The agreement also brings Glendale Water & Power closer to meeting a goal of 20% of power sales being made up of renewable energy by 2017, Power Management Administrator Ned Bassin said.

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with T. Boone Pickens, the lifelong oilman who is rigorously promoting an effort to reduce our dependence on foreign oil. You’ve probably seen his commercials, and you probably agree with his basic premise — what we’re doing isn’t working. We are spending way too much on the purchase of foreign oil, and we’re not doing enough to generate new sources of energy here at home. When an oilman like Pickens steps up and proposes pursuing alternative energy sources like wind and solar, we should all take notice.

Joshua Pelzer The city is casting part of its electrical needs to the wind. Glendale will join Anaheim, Pasadena, Azusa, Colton, Banning and Vernon in an agreement with Portland (Ore.)-based PacifiCorp Power Marketing Inc. to purchase wind-powered electrical energy from a facility being built in Solano County. The city will purchase nine megawatts a year for 25 years beginning July 1. Glendale will pay 5.35 cents per kilowatt hour, which is slightly less than what it pays for natural gas. The city will pay $1.4 million annually and has the option to withdraw after 20 years.

Charles Rich NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- He barely kept his eyes open when he squatted behind the plate. Hoover High baseball catcher Tito Cruz didn't fall asleep. The senior had a degree of difficulty seeing the ball while numerous dust particles whipped up near home plate courtesy of the forceful Santa Ana winds. Cruz shook off the winds and threw out three runners to help Hoover earn an 8-0 nonleague victory against visiting L.A. Marshall on Wednesday.

GLENDALE — Gusty winds on Thursday caused power outages and toppled trees, causing messes throughout the day. A large tree limb in the 700 block of East Broadway fell onto a parked vehicle, while a pine tree collapsed and destroyed two parked cars in the 4100 block of Lauderdale Avenue, said Steve Zurn, Glendale public works director. The pine tree was on private property, so the property owner was responsible for removing it, city spokeswoman Vicki Gardner said. City crews repaired a power line that was damaged by the tree.

Wind gusts toppled trees and power lines Thursday morning, causing outages throughout southwest Glendale. More than 1,500 customers lost power at 8:58 a.m. after trees and palm fronds collapsed on utility lines, likely because of wind gusts, according to Glendale Water & Power officials. Gusts reached 30 mph near Bob Hope Airport on Thursday morning, according to the National Weather Service. About an hour later, workers trimmed trees and restored power to customers near the 6700 block of San Fernando Road and surrounding areas, as well as the 1600 block of Randall Street and 400 blocks of Canyon Drive and Woodbury Road.
