enXco completes 50 MW Linden Wind Project

San Diego, September 30, 2010 – enXco, an EDF Energies Nouvelles company, and Southern California Public Power Authority announced final completion of the 50 MW Linden Wind Project.

The project, developed by enXco and owned by SCPPA, will bring renewable electricity to the SCPPA generation portfolio on behalf of participating members Los Angeles Department of Water and Power and the city of Glendale.

The Linden Wind Farm, consisting of 25 REpower MM92 turbines in Klickitat County, Washington, commenced construction in November 2009 after receiving SCPPA board approval in August 2009.

“We look forward to the reliable delivery from the Linden project to support our renewable energy portfolio objectives,” stated Bill D. Carnahan, Executive Director of SCPPA.

LADWP will provide project management for the SCPPA participants. The utility will receive 90 percent (45 MW) of power produced by the wind farm, representing about 0.5 percent of the utility’s renewable portfolio goal of 20 percent by 2010. The project will utilize existing transmission to deliver the clean wind power to the Los Angeles area.

The SCPPA was created in 1980 by the publicly owned utilities in Southern California to provide financing for their participation in electric generating facilities and high voltage transmission lines.
