Sempra U.S. Gas & Power buys Nebraska wind energy project

Sempra U.S. Gas & Power bought and will develop the Broken Bow 2 wind energy project in Nebraska. When Broken Bow 2 is completed, Sempra U.S. Gas & Power will have joint-venture projects totaling more than 1,000 MW of wind power capacity.

The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.   

Sempra U.S. Gas & Power purchased forty-three 1.7-MW General Electric (GE) wind turbines to power the 75 MW wind farm. Located in Custer County, Nebraska, the wind farm will generate enough renewable power for about 30,000 Nebraska homes with construction slated to begin in December 2013.

The project is expected to employ about 300 workers during peak construction and to be in commercial operation by late 2014. The entire power output from the wind farm has been sold to the Nebraska Public Power District under a 25-year contract.
