THE SANTA CATARINA WIND PROJECT (Arrowhead Projects 1, 2, 3 & 4) : Located in the Indigenous Pai I'Pai Community of Mission Santa Catarina, about 70 miles south of San Diego in Baja CA. At least 508MW of developable 7.0 - 9.0 M/S wind power projects will serve as the anchor for a 1000MW wind and solar project for power supply to CA starting in 2014. Up to 200 MW may be dedicated to local "self supply" projects to industry and commerce in Baja CA beginning in 2013. The entire state of Baja CA has a total demand of 2,000MW - a small fraction of the 60,000MW (10,000 developable) of strong wind power within 100 miles of the CA border.
"Shooting straight for energy developing social equity and a clean environment." Unique community development model, with assistance from US tribes and Mexican Native NGO's. Over 100 square miles of desert land available for solar development - with a substantial warm water aquifer.
The Pai Pai have been living in harmony with nature on their land for over 3,500 years. Together we are forging new ways to sustain our ever-shrinking global village through 100% green energy development.
EXPORT TO CALIFORNIA PROJECT: (4) 250MW Projects to supply wind and solar power from The 263 square mile Indigenous Pai I'Pai Community of Mission Santa Catarina and from various ejidos and private properties near the Baja CA / CA border, to the California, USA grid. APA is enrolling in the January 2011 "Post Reform" Cluster for a 500MW CAISO Queue Position to deliver clean energy to California IOU and Municipal Utilities and resellers. Construction phase-in planned starting in 2013 and continuing up to 2016.
BAJA CA "SELF-SUPPLY" PROJECT: The Princeton Energy Group (PEG), CISA / INTAVAN (CI), and Asociados PanAmericanos (APA) team is on track for a Q4, 2013 operation date for a 30MW Self-Supply project in Baja CA. Transmission requests are in process, prospective customers identified, EIR, Wind* and other Studies in progress.
*Note: Early met tower results are showing better than anticipated wind.
