EDF Renewable Energy acquires 175 MW wind project

San Diego-based EDF Renewable Energy has secured a 96 percent stake in the 175 megawatt Pilot Hill Wind Project from Orion Energy Group LLC and Vision Energy LLC. The project, formerly known as K4, benefits from a 20-year power purchase agreement with Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT).

Pilot Hill Wind Project, located 60 miles southwest of Chicago, Ill. in Kankakee and Iroquois counties, will consist of wind turbines supplied by General Electric and Vestas. The wind project is situated on the same electric grid that powers Microsoft’s Chicago area datacenter. Physical construction on site is to commence shortly with commercial operation anticipated during the first quarter of 2015.

EDF Renewable Energy has 5.7 gigawatts of wind, solar, biomass, and biogas projects developed throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
