Consolidated Edison to develop 95MW wind project in South Dakota, US

CTBR Staff Writer Published 14 July 2015

Consolidated Edison Development has signed an agreement with Campbell County Wind Farm to acquire, build and operate a 95MW (AC) wind power project in the US.

The wind farm is being built on property owned by a group of local farmers in Pollock, South Dakota.

It will feature 55 1.7MW GE wind turbines that will generate around 400,000MWh of energy per year, enough to power 25,000 homes.

The wind farm, which is expected to start operations by the end of this year, is interlinked with the Western Area Power Administration transmission system.

The Basin Electric Power Cooperative will buy the energy generated from the facility under a 30-year power purchase agreement.

ConEdison Development senior vice president and chief operating officer Mark Noyes said: "We're pleased to begin construction on the Campbell County site, which will provide enough electricity to power a significant portion of the region's energy usage.

"ConEdison Development is happy to be working with the local community and looks forward to a continued relationship with the Basin Electric Power Cooperative and WAPA."

ConEdison Development develops, owns and operates renewable and energy infrastructure projects.

The company developed, and owns and operates facilities producing over 650MW of renewable power across ten US states.
