EDF Renewable Energy wind project in Texas now operational

EDF Renewable Energy, formerly enXco, has announced that its Spinning Spur Wind Project, located in Oldham County, Texas, is operational and supplying electricity to the regional transmission grid.

Located approximately 30 miles west of Amarillo, the 161-megawatt project will deliver carbon-free electricity for the benefit of Southwestern Public Service Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Xcel Energy. It's comprised of 70 Siemens 2.3-megawatt turbines.

The energy will be delivered under a 15-year power purchase agreement and will generate clean electricity sufficient to supply approximately 50,000 average homes, EDF Renewable Energy said. Service on the plant, during the turbine warranty period, will be provided by EDF Renewable Services, formerly enXco Service Corp.

"Texas leads the nation in installed wind capacity, due to robust wind resources, a business friendly environment, and supportive stakeholders at the state and local levels," said Ryan Pfaff, executive vice president of EDF Renewable Energy.

Spinning Spur is EDF's first project in Texas.

Cielo Wind Services Inc., of Austin, Texas, participated with EDF Renewable Energy in the construction management of the project.
