Puget Sound Energy has erected all 149 wind turbines at the 343MW Lower Snake River phase I project in Washington.
Construction crews are now finishing the two substations and eight miles of high-voltage transmission lines that will send electricity to the nearby Bonneville Power Administration substation.
PSE's project in western Garfield County is planned for operation by next spring.
PSE environmental and communication coordinator in Garfield County Jay Takemura said: "It's great to see another Puget Sound Energy facility built that's created more green jobs for our state and soon will produce more green energy for our customers."
Southeast Washington's strong winds delayed or interrupted turbine assembly on 79 separate days. "But that's behind us now," Takemura said. "From this point forward, we'll take all the strong winds we can get.
