San Diego, Calif., August 19, 2011 – enXco, an EDF Energies Nouvelles company, entered into a power purchase agreement with Pacific Gas and Electric Co. for a 100 MW wind facility to be built in Solano County, California.
Shiloh IV Wind Project represents a repowering effort to upgrade older technology allowing for increased generation of clean energy with fewer wind turbines. Project development includes the removal of 235 existing Kenetech 100 kW turbines. The original project was installed in 1989, with an installed capacity of 25.2 MW.
enXco will develop, build, and own the Shiloh IV Wind Project while PG&E will purchase the power generated under a 25-year power purchase agreement. The project anticipates commercial operations by the end of 2012, and will be operated and maintained by enXco Service Corp.
The Shiloh IV Wind Project, subject to the approval of the CPUC, is expected to generate clean electricity for about 40,000 average homes.
