SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The first set of blades on the first of 97 planned turbines has been hung at a wind farm under construction near Milford.

Officials with First Wind LLC say the first turbine tower went up in early June and the blades were attached late last month.

More turbine towers are expected to go up in the coming weeks. Company officials say the project is on track to be finished by mid-November.

The turbines are initially expected to generate 300-megawatts of electricity.

Electricity from the project will go to California.
