EDF Energies Nouvelles commissions Milo wind farm in US

CTBR Staff Writer Published 01 February 2016

EDF Energies Nouvelles has commissioned the 49.65MW Milo wind farm, located in Roosevelt County, eastern New Mexico, US.

The wind farm features 25 turbines, which have been supplied by Denmark-based Vestas. The clean electricity generated at the project will be enough to power close to 27,400 average homes in the region.

The company said that the electricity is committed into the real-time market in the Southwest Power Pool (SPP) Regional Transmission Organization (RTO).

EDF Energies Nouvelles' North American subsidiary EDF Renewable Energy has to date commissioned 6.7GW in gross capacity in the US.

The company recently commissioned the 250MW Roosevelt wind farm in New Mexico and the 150MW Slate Creek wind plant in Kansas.

The Roosevelt wind farm, located nearby the Milo wind farm, consists of 125 turbines and the Slate Creek wind farm in South of Wichita is equipped with 75 turbines.

The electricity generated by both the projects will be sold to Southwestern Public Service Company and Great Plains Energy respectively, under separate power purchase agreements for a period of 20 years.

The energy produced at both the facilities will be enough to meet the electricity demands of around 188,500 homes.

EDF Energies Nouvelles has also bought a 50% stake in Indian wind energy company SITAC Wind Management and Development.
