Peter J. Mastic, CEO of Third Planet Windpower, LLC, announces the opening of its Headquarters and Western Regional Office in San Ramon, California.  Brian McDonald, V.P. and Director, Development will lead Third Planet Windpower’s efforts in the Western Region.  He joined Third Planet Windpower from Calpine, where he was Director, Renewables and New Technologies Development.

“We established the San Ramon office to expand our efforts to develop a broad portfolio of wind generation assets in multiple market regions. The San Ramon office, in conjunction with our other offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming, Sweetwater, Texas and Bad Axe, Michigan, allows Third Planet Windpower and its 25 team members to efficiently cover more of the regions we find attractive”, said Mastic. “Brian is a very skilled leader and developer of energy projects, and I am delighted that he has joined Third Planet.”

Mastic also announced that the next generation of the Third Planet Website is now active, at www.thirdplanetwind.com.

Third Planet Windpower was formed to develop, acquire, own and operate a diversified portfolio of wind generation assets. “The company has twenty projects under development comprising more than 7,500 MW, and is well positioned to complete the development, financing and construction of a significant number of wind energy projects over the near term. We expect to be one of the leading companies in the wind industry,” said Mastic, “and we will accomplish that by developing, building and operating successful projects one at a time. This requires building relationships of trust with our landowners and host communities, diligence and honesty in the permitting process, and the financial sophistication to arrange an efficient capital structure for each project”.

Richard M. Goff, CFO confirms that Third Planet also is considering selected mid-stream acquisitions, projects that may be largely developed, but that require capital, turbines, or a power sales agreement or hedging structure.
