EDF Renewable Energy inked a supply agreement with General Electric (GE) for up to 200 MW of wind turbine generators. The agreement covers the supply of GE 1.85 MW models for U.S. wind power projects beginning construction in 2013.
The first wind turbines under the agreement will be deployed at the Hereford Wind Project in the Texas Panhandle. EDF Renewable Energy and Lincoln Renewable Energy (LRE), a developer of wind and solar power projects, have executed a purchase agreement, under which EDF Renewable Energy will buy from LRE the first phase (200 MW) of the Hereford project as well as an option agreement for a total of up to 500 MW.
EDF Renewable Energy’s U.S. portfolio spans 16 states with 4,000 MW of developed projects and an installed capacity of 1,962 MW.
