Summit Wind Farm


  • Summit Wind Farm is a repowering project located in the high wind resource area of the Altamont Pass in Alameda County, CA.

  • Salka did not originate, but rather acquired Summit in 2015 from the owner of an older wind farm that had been operational on the site since 1985.

  • The project is expected to create up to 100 new jobs and has entered into a Project Labor Agreement with the Alameda Building Trades Council.

  • In March 2017 Salka entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement with Castlelake L.P., a $12B private equity firm based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

  • In June 2019 the East Bay Community Energy (EBCE) board of directors approved a 20 year agreement to purchase 57.5 MW of wind energy from the Summit Wind Farm.
